Pagination or Media Count:
The Air Force is frequently placed in a situation where a large quantity of goods must be transported between various locations in a specified time period by Air Force personnel. The goods are of different and interrelated types thus, the sequence of missions is specified to maintain a proper balance of goods at each location. In addition to aircraft maintenance, health and alertness maintenance for pilots and personnel is a vital consideration in scheduling. Nevertheless, economy in operations needs to be demonstrated. Thus, the problem addressed in this paper is one of minimizing the number of crews used in the airlift, subject to crew rest requirements and the completion of all missions within the specified time frame.
