Functional Description: This software is a prototype developed under a bilateral contract with the company Keolis. This software is a solver which aims to optimize the schedule of mediation staff. More precisely, for each member of the mediation staff working in a public transportation network, MEDIATOUR determines his/her schedule along the day, i.e. when and where he/she is present. Various operational constraints must be taken into account such as the coverage of the network. This software is designed to solve large-scale industrial instances (the subway network of Lille) in short computation times (less than 1 minute).
