ABSTRACT
In this article, the authors describe a decision-support system for an integrated transport problem in the food industry. Cosytec developed the system using CHIP, a constraint programming tool. The TACT program covers planning, scheduling, and resource assignment of operational fleet management. To guide and control schedule creation, the planner has integrated problem solvers in an interactive user interface. The authors present the different global constraints in the problem solvers and discuss the main benefits gained by using constraint technology in this project.
