Abstract
WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AN INTERACTIVE OPTIMIZATION SYSTEM FOR CARGO SHIP SCHEDULING. THE SYSTEM WILL BE RESIDENT ON A MICRO VAX AND HAVE A COLOR GRAPHICS INTERFACE TO ENABLE EASY INTERACTION. WE WILL USE THIS SYSTEM TO EXPLORE A VARIETY OF RESEARCH QUESTIONS INCLUDING THE APPROPRIATE MODEL FOR SHIP SCHEDULING, DETAILED DESIGN OF THE OPTIMIZATION ALGORITHM TO ACHIEVE RUN TIME EFFICIENCY, AND USEFUL DESIGN OF COLOR GRAPHICS DISPLAYS TO ENABLE EFFECTIVE USER INTERACTION. OUR WORK WILL BE BASED IN PART ON PRIOR SUCCESSFUL RESEARCH FUNDED BY THE OFFICE OF NAVAL RESEARCH.
