Trajectory Decision Making Framework

The paper addresses a general view to trajectory (route) decision making framework (i.e., designing a trajectory). The view is based on four-part morphological scheme: (a) routing combinatorial problems (e.g., shortest path problem, minimum spanning tree problems, TSP), (b) assessment scales (i.e., quantitative, ordinal, poset-like), (c) graph/network based models as solving space (e.g., k-partite graph), and (d) node/vertex models/types. The following issues are considered: (i) structuring the design/solving space, (ii) problem statement, (iii) heuristics. A realistic university student trajectory problem (route from BS degree to PostDoc position) is examined.
