The Crew Scheduling Problem

In a typical crew scheduling problem, a set of trips
has to be assigned to some available crews.
The goal is to assign a subset of the trips to each crew in such a way
that no trip is left unassigned.
As usual, not every possible assignment is allowed since a number of
constraints must be observed.
Additionally, a cost function has to be minimized.
