Optimizing the best possible routes for transporting materials, while following various capacity, demand and scheduling constraints is a fairly common problem in the manufacturing industry. For our project, we worked with SeQuential Biofuels, a company that needs to optimize transport of their raw material from their depots in California to their plant in Oregon. We used a combination of a transportation and scheduling models to create a model, that not only takes into account the dynamic nature of their constraints, but provides a holistic solution.
