Abstract:

The IBM Vehicle Scheduling Program VSP was used to schedule refuse collection at five Air Force bases. The application procedure and the results are presented for two of these bases. The results indicate that computer scheduling of refuse collection can reduce manpower, distance traveled, and the number of vehicles required by up to 20 percent. Difficulties involved in using the IBM program and in producing the final route maps and schedule indicate that a computer program that would determine the traversal path and draw the route should be written or obtained if one exists.
