Supplier allocation

Project done at Deloitte (Client: Rolls-Royce)

Technologies used: Python, ORTools, Linear (Integer) Optimisation Timeline : Feb 2021 - Jun 2021

Impact: Estimated savings of 12 Million Pounds

POC: Bid Allocation tool

Problem Statement: Allocating parts in a manufacturing plant to suppliers for changing business constraints

Suppliers bid on various parts that are to be procured in a manufacturing plant. Built the data science framework for a web-based tool that allocates parts to various suppliers across time. The tool uses OR Tools (Integer programming) to run a supplier allocation problem. Different business constraints were converted into integer-based constraints and added to the optimisation function. These business constraints can be modified, added, or removed using the web-based UI and the optimal solution for each scenario is computed.
