Abstract

We computationally assess policies for the elevator control problem by a new column-generation approach for the linear programming method for discounted infinite-horizon Markov decision problems. By analyzing the optimality of given actions in given states, we were able to provably improve the well-known nearest-neighbor policy. Moreover, with the method we could identify an optimal parking policy. This approach can be used to detect and resolve weaknesses in particular policies for Markov decision problems.
