    The prepacking problem consists in putting a product of different sizes, for instance T-Shirts, into packs sent to stores to satisfy demand. However, to reduce costs, the number of different pack configurations is limited. Different approaches were tried such as a MIP, constraint programming and a heuristic.

    Dynamic Task Assignment in a Warehouse

    • Éric Prescott Gagnon, prés., JDA Software
    • Antoine Legrain, Polytechnique Montréal
    • Louis-Martin Rousseau, Polytechnique Montréal

    A warehouse is a highly dynamic environment where tasks are created, modified and canceled as trucks come and go and things are moved around. The dynamic task assignment problem consists in assigning a new task to an employee based on productivity criteria.

  • 11h20 - 11h45

    Optimization in Fashion Assortment Planning

    • Éric Prescott Gagnon, JDA Software
    • Vincent Raymond, prés., JDA Software
    • Marc Brisson, JDA Software
    • Marie-Claude Côté, JDA Software
    • Gabrielle Gauthier Melançon, JDA Software

    Planning an assortment in fashion consists in selecting the best set of items to be carried in each store of a chain for a future season based on user-defined constraints. To solve this problem, a genetic algorithm, a MIP model and new approaches to create new items have been developed.

    The slides are in English but will be presented in French.
