“Adjustable Preference Path Strategies for use in MSTV Transportation Networks”

Transportation Research Record 1923, 137-143.
Opasanon, S. and E. Miller-Hooks (2005)


In this paper, an exact algorithm is proposed for determining adjustable preference path strategies (APPS) in multicriteria, stochastic and time-varying (MSTV) networks. In MSTV networks, multiple arc attributes are associated with each arc, each of which is a time-varying random variable. Solution paths that seek to minimize the expected value of each of multiple criteria are sought from all origins to a specified destination for all departure times in a period of interest.

These solution strategies allow a traveler to update his or her preference for which criterion of multiple criteria is of greatest importance and then adaptively select the best path with respect to the selected criterion at each node in response to knowledge of experienced travel times on the arcs. Such adjustable preference path strategies are particularly useful for providing real-time path finding assistance.
