Summary: [For the entire collection see Zbl 0578.90053.]
The purpose of this paper is to review current mathematical techniques for in-vehicle crew and terminal manpower scheduling. We first review the main characteristics of the problem and its context. We then examine the most-used techniques for the construction of workdays and workday rosters. We describe in some detail the use of set covering techniques, and a complete section is devoted to crew scheduling problems in urban transit.
