RANDOM VEHICLE DISPATCHING WITH OPTIONS AND OPTIMAL FLEET SIZE.

Dror Zuckerman, Charles Tapiero

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

A dispatching problem with random availability of vehicles and options to send rented vehicles is considered. Passenger arrivals are assumed to be described by a pure-birth process. Such a problem is analytically attractive and is shown to have practical applications in vehicle dispatching models. An average cost criterion is used to determine firm's fleet size and option (renting) strategy.
