Objectives derived from viewing hazmat shipments as a sequence of independent Bernoulli trials. (English) Zbl 0887.90059
Summary: This paper derives six objectives for routing hazardous material by viewing shipments as a sequence of independent Bernoulli trials. An example that compares these objectives is presented. Suitable approximations toward the use of these objectives in an optimization framework are provided. The paper also discusses the objectives from the viewpoint of their use to make actual hazardous material routing decisions.
