Title: Automation of bus crew rosters
Author: Potter, Ronda May
Issue Date: 1968
School/Discipline: School of Mathematical Sciences
Abstract: This thesis is concerned with the problem of rostering operating crews for a city transportation system and in particular with the mathematical formulation of constructing an automated week day operator's roster. The problem of constructing late p.m. straight shifts is discussed and formulated as a heuristic programme. Methods for forming straight shifts consisting of two or three pieces of work are derived. The other problem considered is the formulation of a basic framework which defines the structure of the a.m. straight shifts and broken shifts. A technique for classifying the type of shifts necessary over the off-peak period is also discussed.
