Abstract
Dergulation has lead to a highly cmpetitive situation in european railway freight transportation. Railway companies are looking for improved solutions to the allocation of their resources. The resource allocation process can be subdivided in the three phases wagon circulation, engine scheduling and crew scheduling. We outline the interaction of these three planning phases and present in detail an optimizing approach for specialized crew scheduling problem. in order to be close to reality, various new aspects like transfer of crews, different and limited crews and a high number of technical and legal restrictions have to be considered. The develoded optimization model is based on a network and formulated as a set covering problem with additional crew limits.
