Test Detail -
The objective of train platforming, which is the routing problem that generally follows any timetabling phase, is to find an assignment of trains to platforms in a railway station. The practical relevance of the problem inspired the definition of a few different versions, which are relatively easy for small contexts, i.e.,stations with very few platforms and alternative paths to route the trains, but become extremely difficult when applied to complex railway station topologies such as those associated with the main European stations, leading to instances with hundreds of trains and tens of platforms. Moreover, most versions are not
concerned with the station topology and ignore the routing phase, whereas the main European stations frequently have complex topologies and the routing issuecan be quite a complicated task.
