  Title Designing and constructing networks under uncertainty in the construction stage: Definition and exact algorithmic approach Type Journal Article
  Year 2017 Publication Computers & Operations Research Abbreviated Journal Comput. Oper. Res.  
  Volume 81 Issue Pages 178-191  
  Keywords Network design; Network construction; Two-stage robust optimization; Exact algorithms  
  Abstract The present work proposes a novel Network Optimization problem whose core is to combine both network design and network construction scheduling under uncertainty into a single two-stage robust optimization model. The first-stage decisions correspond to those of a classical network design problem, while the second-stage decisions correspond to those of a network construction scheduling problem (NCS) under uncertainty. The resulting problem, which we will refer to as the Two-Stage Robust Network Design and Construction Problem (2SRNDC), aims at providing a modeling framework in which the design decision not only depends on the design costs (e.g., distances) but also on the corresponding construction plan (e.g., time to provide service to costumers). We provide motivations, mixed integer programming formulations, and an exact algorithm for the 2SRNDC. Experimental results on a large set of instances show the effectiveness of the model in providing robust solutions, and the capability of the proposed algorithm to provide good solutions in reasonable running times.

  Title Lateness Minimization in Pairwise Connectivity Restoration Problems Type Journal Article
  Year 2018 Publication Informs Journal On Computing Abbreviated Journal INFORMS J. Comput.  
  Volume 30 Issue 3 Pages 522-538  
  Keywords combinatorial optimization; networks: scheduling; programming: branch and bound; network restoration; network construction; integrated network design and scheduling  
  Abstract A network is given whose edges need to be constructed (or restored after a disaster). The lengths of edges represent the required construction/restoration times given available resources, and one unit of length of the network can be constructed per unit of time. All points of the network are accessible for construction at any time. For each pair of vertices, a due date is given. It is required to find a construction schedule that minimizes the maximum lateness of all pairs of vertices, where the lateness of a pair is the difference between the time when the pair becomes connected by an already constructed path and the pair's due date. We introduce the problem and analyze its structural properties, present a mixed-integer linear programming formulation, develop a number of lower bounds that are integrated in a branch-and-bound algorithm, and discuss results of computational experiments both for instances based on randomly generated networks and for instances based on 2010 Chilean earthquake data.
