Abstract:

Modelling and solving large scale networks are crucial to many practical military applications. The purpose of this note is to identify important elements of successful models and methods based on breakthroughs in network areas that have been validated in over a hundred computer hours of empirical testing and 15 man years of code development resulting in the modelling of large scale military manpower assignment problems and designing computer codes for solving large scale assignment, transportation, and transshipment problems.
