Abstract
The Explosive Ordnance Disposal Training and Evaluation Unit TWO (EODTEU TWO) trains Explosive Ordnance and Disposal (EOD) and Mobile Diving and Salvage (MDS) companies and platoons prior to worldwide deployments. This thesis describes EODSKED, an optimization model designed to assist EODTEU TWO in scheduling platoons that optimizes the use of limited resources and maximizes training value. EODSKED produces an optimized schedule that respects a large number of manpower and materiel resource constraints, such a schedule is difficult to achieve with the current manual scheduling process. Schedule modifications are often required after a schedule has been published; therefore, EODSKED incorporates persistence constraints to generate new schedules that match existing schedules closely.
