Title: Dynamic Supply Routing for a Make-To-Order Manufacturing Network

Joint work with J. Foreman (MIT), J. Alspaugh (Dell), R. Bhatnagar (NTU), C.
Teo (NTU), C. Dubois (ENSMP)

Abstract: Dell's supply chain for desktops involves Asian vendors shipping components by sea to several U.S. plants. While suppliers are responsible for shipping enough inventory, Dell can reroute and expedite their shipments while in transit to balance inventory across sites and dynamically track geographic demand patterns. We present the optimization models developed in collaboration with Dell to address this routing challenge, insights gained since their implementation last year including the results of an impact assessment study, and ongoing extensions.
