Abstract
This paper describes the design of a socio-technical research system for the purpose of rescheduling train drivers in the event of disruptions. The research system is structured according to the Actor-Agent paradigm: Here agents assist in rescheduling tasks of train drivers. Coordination between agents is based on a team formation process in which possible rescheduling alternatives can be evaluated, based on constraints and preferences of involved human train drivers and dispatchers. The research aim is to explore the effectiveness of a decentralized, flexible actor-agent based approach to crew rescheduling. The research system is realized using the Cougaar framework and includes actual rolling stock schedule data and driver duty data. The current reduced-scale version shows promising results for the full-scale version end 2008.
