Project Information

Construction cost minimization algorithm in selecting transport provider.

Description

Build an algorithm that seeks the lowest total cost of transportation between the company's routes for a given day, respecting all its technical and availability restrictions.

Project Benefits / Impacts

The tool automatically suggests the best transport providers according to their availability at the moment and in technical capacities pointing out the cost of each suggestion. If the user wants to change the suggestion for a given route, the tool also helps by showing a list ordered by cost of possible alternatives. This simulator was able to reduce the time of this process by more than 80% freeing up the team's time for analysis and management. In addition to allowing multiple people to use the same tool simultaneously, it makes the process more reliable and auditable.
