Service operations management of metropolitan gas networks at operational level implies the optimisation of decisions related to logistic activities, taking into account multi-objectives and operational constraints. This paper proposes a metaheuristic approach for the operational planning of the daily logistic activities based on vehicle routing with time window model. Experimental results for a real planning case in a gas distribution network demonstrate the approach effectiveness.

Abstract

Service operations management of metropolitan gas networks at operational level implies the optimisation of decisions related to logistic activities, taking into account multi-objectives and operational constraints. This paper proposes a metaheuristic approach for the operational planning of the daily logistic activities based on vehicle routing with time window model. Experimental results for a real planning case in a gas distribution network demonstrate the approach effectiveness.
