Paper on „Exact Branch-Price-and-Cut for a Hospital Therapist Scheduling Problem with Flexible Service Locations and Time-Dependent Location Capacity“ published in INFORMS Journal on Computing


Alexander Jungwirth, former PhD-student at the chair of Operations Management, jointly with Rainer Kolisch (TUM), Guy Desaulniers (Polytechnique Montreal), and Markus Frey, published a paper on an optimal approach for solving the vehicle routing problem with multiple service locations. The specific application is therapy scheduling in hospitals where patients can be treated either in a central therapy center or in ward rooms. The method uses Brach-Price-and-Cut for solving the problem efficiently. The paper has been published in INFORMS Journal on Computing pubsonline.informs.org/doi/abs/10.1287/ijoc.2021.1119
