Research Projects

Sate University of New Jersey, Rutgers, Newark, NJ

         March 2001-current

Demand and Supply Planning Optimization Project, General Chemical Group, NJ

We developed a mixed integer programming model to deal with after-acquisition production and distribution issues. Coded the MIP model in C++, and developed solution procedure utilizing CPLEX MIP solver. Trained company staffs to experiment with the model. The recommendations from this project saved the company several million dollars in operation spending. This project is a semi-finalist of the 2001 Edelman Award for Management Science Achievement.
