Decision diagrams for solving traveling salesman problems with pickup and delivery in real time. (English) Zbl 07165777
Summary: The Traveling Salesman Problem with Pickup and Delivery seeks a minimum cost path with pickups preceding deliveries. It is important in on-demand last-mile logistics, such as ride sharing and meal delivery. We examine the use of low-width decision diagrams in a branch-and-bound with and without assignment problem inference duals as a primal heuristic for finding good solutions within strict time budgets. We show these diagrams can be more effective than similarly structured hybrid constraint programming techniques for real-time decision making.
