Module Transport Simulation
See state-of-the-art simulation and optimization techniques designed for the University’s industrial partners to find the best inventory, freight, and supply chain solutions. The planning for breakbulk transportation and logistics is extremely challenging due to tremendous complexities and uncertainties. The solutions were enabled by GIS visualization and animation to find optimal inventory, freight, and supply chain solutions.
