DECOMPOSITION AND SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS IN AN AIRCRAFT TASKING PROBLEM

This paper discusses some of the computational aspects of linking tasks on aircraft via a two-phase algorithm. The first phase may combine tasks into single flights to reduce total flying time, and the second phase attempts to schedule these flights on available aircraft. An efficient blending of the two phases which provides for possible sensitivity analysis is presented. Also, computational results with several rules for scheduling the flights on available aircraft are given, along with a proof of convergence for certain of these rules.
