The management of transportation and production systems often requires solving a sequence of optimization problems, each problem optimizing the utilization of some resources: equipment, personnel, etc. For instance, transit authorities perform bus scheduling followed by daily and monthly driver scheduling; airlines perform aircraft scheduling followed by crew pairing and monthly crew scheduling; and manufacturing companies address manpower scheduling before production scheduling. Such a sequential approach for management was introduced a long time ago when solutions were computed manually.
