Factors making the transport inconvenient to passengers, can be related to costs. Logistics Planner will keep the inconvenience factors as low as possible.
As an example will the total costs for the transport increase if passengers travel time increases. Therefore a transport plan with little travel will be preferred.
Som et eksempel kan de samlede omkostninger for transportplanen stige i takt med at passagerenes rejsetid stiger. Resultatet bliver, at planer med kort rejsetid vil blive foretrukket.
Max travel time allowed
Max travel time related to the direct route
Every minute of passenger travel time has a cost and will be minimized
On route waiting time is minimized
Driver breaks requires empty busses
Deliveries can be planed as late in the time window as possible
Order groups are used to specify if persons can not travel together
Persons with identical transportation needs can be treated as one order
Time windows place time constraints on tasks (pickups/deliveries)
Each time window has a start time and an end time
Optional and scalable tolerance with scalable penalty for task completion outside time window
Optional to allow tasks to only start but not end inside time window
Late delivery option places task as late as possible in the time window
Logistics Planner supports 3 different types of breaks.
Fixed breaks with empty vehicle at any location
Floating breaks will be inserted after specified period of time
Idle time breaks allows vehicle to return to depot
Vehicle capacities vs loads for each DRT/paratransit order
Each vehicle can have multiple capacities attached (for instance 8 seats for sitting passengers, 3 spaces for passengers in wheelchairs)
Every order/trip requires one or more capacities
An order/trip could be a single person (seated), a group of persons (seated) or a mixed group passengers (some seated, some requiring wheelchair spaces)
When 2 persons, (brother and sister), have identical transport needs.
Due to the order handling systems, this may result in 2 orders that sometimes can be carried out by 2 different vehicles.
To avoid this, Logistics Planner can detect such orders and handle them internally as a single order with summed up loads and service times.
Planning the transportation for a group of persons from their individual homes to a common institution or event arriving at the same time.
Better plans can be created when taking this information into account.
Logistics Planner handles both common start and end locations.
Order groups are used to specify if persons can not travel together.
Each order can belong to zero, one or more order groups.
3 different types of rules specify the restrictions. Any number of order groups and rules can be used, but once a restriction is incurred between two orders, the two persons cannot travel together.
Do not mix outside order group
Do not mix with other order group
Do not mix inside order group
All pickup- and delivery tasks have a duration.
When more passengers are pickuped or delivered at the same location the following options can be used in Logistics Planner:
Rapidis Logistics Planner can respect a route that is already defined. Other orders can be allocated to the bus before and after the predefined routes.
The example shows a fixed travel time order with a time window on the pickup task. The pickup must occur between 04:00 and 04:10 and FixedTravelTime is set to 16 minutes.
The fixed route is treated as one long task with FixedTravelTime as the duration
Either pickup or delivery can have a time window, but not both
