The Crew module in Trapeze’s Planning & Scheduling solution rapidly constructs driver schedules, which integrate with vehicle schedules to satisfy the work constraints and practices for public transport operators.
Using mathematical algorithms, you can efficiently generate what-if scenarios using variations and adjustments reflecting your business’s objectives in order of priority. For example, these are goals you can set within the module:
- Minimise overall cost
- Maximise a particular driver shift type
- Reduce the number of vehicles at a specified depot
This allows you to find operational savings while remaining compliant with award rates and regulations. Optimise your use of drivers to suit transport needs; control wage costs to manage your budget; and create driver schedules that meet not just working conditions and rules, but also driver preferences.
