Comparison of optimization strategies on a depot



Public transport plays a decisive role in the search for sustainable mobility solutions. Especially in the case of buses, diesel vehicles are currently still in use for the most part and are to be replaced with suitable alternatives within the next two decades. For local public transport operators, this means extensive changes to their depots and operating procedures. In order to support the RNV in the change of operations, optimization strategies for the operational process are to be investigated.

Goals of the work

  • Establishment of a suitable cost function
  • Implementation of different optimization strategies
  • Comparison of the optimization strategies


  • Knowledge of Python, Matlab or OR language
  • Knowledge of modeling discrete-event systems helpful
  • Motivation and interest in solving technical problems independently
