Disruption in a schedule (or plan) can be managed but not all factors are visible. A study of disruption management is performed specifically to minimize the differences between the expected and actual context of execution. The purpose of this paper is twofold: first to offer an introduction and deliver a concept of disruption management in the transportation sector. Second, we aim to understand challenges in a rescheduling strategy to manage disruption in the area of resource scheduling. Real world applications from airline to railway services are used as a basis of the investigation. A discussion on the future development of disruption management with a focus on rail track inspection is provided in the final part of this paper.
