VCS-data: Vehicle Crew Scheduling Data



VCS-data: Vehicle Crew Scheduling Data

This set contains 240 test instances we generated using all different combinations of important problem parameters for a crew scheduling problem apparent for off-shore supply vessels (OSVs).

The documentation file provides thorough detail regarding problem parameters and different values used for each of these, and it also presents an MIP formulation of the problem to clarify the use of the data in a problem setting. Each data instance has a text file with defined parameters, please see the .zip file that contains all instances.

The data is in a format that allows parameters to be readable for optimization software FICO XPress-MP. The same software was used to generate the individual data instances based on the detailed description available in the documentation file.
