Supply Chain Management

TEST’s experts have implemented cutting-edge strategies to optimize resource procurement, production planning, shipment and logistics operations, and inventory management in a variety of contexts. Some examples include: (i) optimize network topology, processes and efficiency for agricultural supply chains; (ii) resource management and inventory control under biofuel production competition and stochasticity; (iii) streamline coordination of operations via information and incentive mechanisms in urban logistics systems.

Distribution Systems

Distribution Systems TEST experts have improved the efficiency of distribution systems of many companies by developing innovation solutions for goods/personnel distribution system such as: (i) facility placement for locomotive service facilities; (ii) fleet scheduling and routing for logistics systems; (iii) crew scheduling and overtime management.

Resource Management

TEST team members have a history of award-winning successes in achieving major cost savings for the railroad industry by providing solutions to aid in planning of major capital infrastructure investments to scheduling of key equipment, personnel and activities. In all cases there have been at least double-digit percentage improvements that have resulted in annual savings of tens of millions of dollars or more.
