  • Publication number: 20240062148
    Abstract: A computer acquires candidate data including operation plan candidates, each indicating a candidate of at least one location by which a transporter transporting a load periodically stops and a time when the transporter stops by each of the locations, at least one operation plan candidate being defined by using a time included in a period of one cycle and a time not included in the period. The computer determines, when first and second operation plan candidates include a common location, whether transshipment of the load at the common location is possible by shifting a second time included in the second operation plan candidate by an integer multiple of the period and comparing the shifted second time with a first time included in the first operation plan candidate. The computer searches for at least two operation plan candidates for transporting the load, based on a determination result of the transshipment.
