Abstract:The motivation for our work is the challenge ProRail is having with their maintenance planning process. The main problem is that standard practice at Prorail is to not plan more than 4 years ahead. This leads to a lack of overview for tactical decisions and unused opportunities to reduce nuisance. When track work is done, a part of rail infrastructure is reserved for that purpose. This is called a possession. Possessions signify which tracks are out of service, at what date and for what duration. By moving possessions from various years to the same year possessions could be clustered together, and as such reduce the amount of nuisance.
