We present a new Lagrangian-based heuristic for solving large-scale set-covering problems arising from crew-scheduling at the Italian Railways (Ferrovie dello Stato). Our heuristic obtained impressive results when compared to state-of-the-art codes on a test-bed provided by the company, which includes instances with sizes ranging from 50,000 variables and 500 constraints to 1,000,000 variables and 5000 constraints.

Abstract

We present a new Lagrangian-based heuristic for solving large-scale set-covering problems arising from crew-scheduling at the Italian Railways (Ferrovie dello Stato). Our heuristic obtained impressive results when compared to state-of-the-art codes on a test-bed provided by the company, which includes instances with sizes ranging from 50,000 variables and 500 constraints to 1,000,000 variables and 5000 constraints.
