Warehouse and Retailer Inventory Optimization for an Auto-Parts Manufacturer (with TerraSeer)

Picture of wheel berrings.With consultants at TerraSeer, Inc., a Master’s student in the Industrial and Systems Engineering department built an inventory optimization model for a major manufacturer of auto parts. The model optimizes inventory levels at warehouses and the retailers they serve in order to minimize carrying costs while satisfying service-level constraints. The auto-parts manufacturer uses the results of this model to help its customers (auto-parts retailers) manage their own inventories.
