This project addresses the network design problem for maintenance parts within a Performance-based Logistics (PBL) environment. It evaluates both maintenance facility location & transportation cost versus service time trade-offs.
Key deliverables have included:
– a transportation cost estimation tool
– a reverse logistics network design tool
– an analysis of a Boeing platform with respect to: total transportation spend, repair reallocation, transportation mode
We are exploring component repair and distribution facility location in order to minimize cost and time performance with capability, capacity, and other constraints.
