Incomplete contents:
This paper reviews the advances in computer technology over the last 15 years and illustrates how local and overseas companies are using mathematical models to improve their business decision making. We outline various vehicle scheduling problems and many American and European applications appearing in the scientific literature. We analyse one New Zealand company's experience with tanker scheduling in the early eighties - and its success in reducing tanker travel and trips. We describe a new vehicle scheduling system called STAR, its data requirements, and its interactive visual nature. Finally we look at what the local dairy industry expects from the competing scheduling packages. (auth.)
