The book presents three contributions that are made to the field of transportation. First, a model considering the minimization of customer inconvenience is formulated. Second, a pro-active real-time control approach is proposed. Stochastic knowledge is generated from past request information by a new forecasting approach and is used in the pro-active approach to guide vehicles to request-likely areas before real requests arrive there. Various computational results are presented to show that in many cases the pro-active approach is able to achieve significantly improved results. Moreover, a measure for determining the structural quality of request data sets is also proposed. The third contribution of this book is a method that is presented for considering driver inconvenience aspects which arise from vehicle en-route diversion activities. Specifically, this method makes it possible to restrict the number of performed vehicle en-route diversion activities.Contributions to Management Science,1431-1941Operations researchDecision makingProduction managementSales managementComputer simulationOperations Research/Decision Theoryhttps://scigraph.springernature.com/ontologies/product-market-codes/521000Operations Managementhttps://scigraph.springernature.com/ontologies/product-market-codes/519000Sales/Distributionhttps://scigraph.springernature.com/ontologies/product-market-codes/524000Simulation and Modelinghttps://scigraph.springernature.com/ontologies/product-market-codes/I19000Operations research.Decision making.Production management.Sales management.Computer simulation.Operations Research/Decision Theory.Operations Management.Sales/Distribution.Simulation and Modeling.388.324042Ferrucci Francescoauthttp://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/aut191727BOOK9910438066903321Pro-active Dynamic Vehicle Routing2536700UNINA
