A stochastic programming approach to resource-constrained assignment problems
We address the resource-constrained generalizations of the assignment problem with uncertain resource capacities, where the resource capacities have an unknown distribution that can be sampled. We propose three stochastic programming-based formulations that can be used to solve this problem, and provide exact and approximate solution techniques for the resulting models. We also present numerical results for a large set of numerical problems. The results indicate that the solutions obtained using the stochastic programming approaches perform significantly better than those obtained using expected values of capacities in a deterministic solution strategy. In addition, stochastic-programming-based approximations are computationally as efficient as deterministic techniques.
