The team's computer application awards lanes to carriers while meeting UPS's need to increase on-time performance, use fewer carriers, and balance carrier assignments. It also lets UPS compare multiple scenarios, add custom constraints, and identify bids where negotiation is most valuable. The project should save UPS approximately $1.3 million/year and improve customer and carrier satisfaction.

The senior design team designed an analytical tool to help ocean carriers determine the best bid prices to win contracts in this program. This tool uses forecasting techniques, an optimization model to simulate the contract awarding process, and analysis tools to aid Next Wave Agency in selecting the best bid price. The tool is being implemented during the May 2008 round of bidding.

Given the strategic nature of the project the team designed a model that made minimal parametric assumptions, modeling inventory using Brownian motion. The team then developed a set of decision-making tools that illustrate the relationships between demand conditions and transportation rates, supply strategies, system performance and bottom line costs. l Th e H.

Using Swaziland as a pilot, the team quantified at-risk populations and times for malaria and intervention costs for spraying or bednets. They developed recommendations for number and placement of facilities with scheduled deployment for labor, chemicals, and trucks. The team designed an interface to test and visualize Swaziland results and to evaluate benefits of adapting the methodologies throughout Africa. Georgiaflrmefififiwfice ©fiTechtm©D©gjy ...
