Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Optimizing Delivery Network of a Company

How can a company (such as FedEx, Amazon, DoorDash) reduce the number of miles traveled by their fleet, while still delivering to all their customers? By minimizing the distance traveled, a company can save money on fuel and reduce their environmental impact. To solve this problem, we can look at one city and distribution network and decide in what order to deliver packages with a minimum number of miles. During this project we will dive deep into optimization modeling with Excel, and think through the business requirements needed to solve this problem.
