Study on Optimization of Multi-Type Aircraft Scheduling Robust Model
Phased implementation approach, namely three models: aircraft type distribution model, aircraft scheduling model, robustness model is used to achieve the optimization of aircraft scheduling robustness. Aircraft type distribution model is established to obtain the best model of each leg; then fleet scheduling model is established to determine specified type in the implementation of the specific aircrafts for each flight, flight strings, which meet the constraints, are obtained by solving; finally, the flight robustness model is established, that is, flight string with minimal impact is selected from above flight strings to obtain high robustness of multi-type flight scheduling combination. The phased multi-type aircraft scheduling robust model has been successfully applied in the domestic airline scheduling, it has been achieved a better effect of robust optimization.
