Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The field of operations research has had a tremendous impact on the management of today's air transportation. Driven by enormous demand from management to gain a competitive advantage in the market, airlines are turning to advanced optimization techniques to develop mission-critical decision support systems for management and control of airline operations. The purpose of Operations Research in the Airlines Industry is to show some recent advances in optimization techniques and decision support systems applications in air transportation. It covers a wide variety of operations research topics in the air transportation industry including: Demand forecasting Network design Revenue management Route planning Airline schedule planning Irregular operations aircraft routing Integrated scheduling Real-time crew management Crew pairing optimization Air traffic flow management Crew rostering Airport traffic simulation and control Coping with the FAA's traffic control program.

Book News Annotation:

The complexity of the airline industry--especially since its 1978 deregulation--is now matched by computer sophistication in solving large-scale, real-time problems. In 15 articles, 31 high-flying global contributors highlight recent advances in optimization techniques and decision support systems applications in the fiercely competitive air transportation industry. Operations research topics include: demand forecasting models, revenue management via neural networks, airline schedule planning, integrated scheduling, crew rostering, network design, route planning, real-time crew management, airport traffic stimulation, and coping with the FAA's traffic control programs. Includes graphics.
