case7The municipality of a medium-sized town wishes to have a so-called Compact Dynamic Bus Station built. For the fulfilment of the bus schedule, logistics principles are used for the station processes. The core question is: how many platforms and buffer locations are required? In this extensive case study, the schedule of 38 bus lines is rendered in an Excel file during 4 peak hours and involves 275 buses. This file can be copied to ED or can be used from Excel via a DDE-link. Both techniques are studied.
