The participating companies will give the following cases:

Can you imagine how many goods flow around the world, on land, by air or on water?
Goods are transported from source, handled in terminals, airports and ports. Stock is moved to and stored in warehouses, before and after it is processed in factories. Finished products are transported from the factory door to distribution centers (DCs) and from these DCs they ultimately reach their buyers through virtual shops or physical outlets. Hence, a continuous flow that always requires effort to control and improve. Districon acts within these fields of control and improvement and always searches for optimality. Districon works for customers all over the world, creating logistics solutions and addressing strategic to operational challenges. Applying in-depth knowledge and experience, we surprise our clients and partners with our results-oriented, innovative approach.

Case: Supermarkets receive their goods from a single, central distribution center. Trucks drive routes, visiting multiple supermarkets on their way. When constructing these routes, several constraints should be considered, such as the maximum capacity of a truck and a maximum route length.

Your task: You are the route planner. A basic schedule is already generated, but it does not fulfill all the wishes and constraints of the supermarkets and truck drivers. You will extend the AIMMS model to optimize the schedule, adding new constraints, and create a user interface with your results.The team which presents his solution best wins a prize!

Can you beat your competition? The best Vendor Managed Inventory Solution wins
Take up the challenge and beat all your competition by participating in an exciting case (or should we say intelligence race). By defeating your competitors you will not only be honoured by ORTEC, but also receive a contract with a large oil company. All you have to do is to create the best Vendor Management Inventory (VMI) Solution. This shouldn’t be too hard for you, since you are the best in your field, right?
Case description: Your group has recently started a logistics consultancy company  in the Oil and Gas industry.  Having arranged all legal and financial details, your first goal now is to get clients. The first potential client is an oil company. This company wants to investigate the possibility of introducing Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI). VMI is a process in which the supplier is responsible for maintaining customer inventory levels. This means that the supplier will have to generate orders based on demand information from its customers. As a result, the supplier gains more freedom in planning its deliveries and can therefore optimize its delivery strategy. To introduce VMI the oil company has approached a number of different consultancy offices for a pilot study. For this study, the company has selected a number of its customers (tank stations). Information on these customers has been provided along with the pilot study. The oil company has scheduled a number of meetings with each consultancy office. These meetings are to discuss the progress of the pilot study. In these meetings the consultants can ask questions and request additional information. Present the results of your pilot study with your group members and convince the oil company your VMI Solution is simply the best.
