Industrial engineering, operations research, and systems engineering are fields of study intended for individuals who are interested in analyzing and formulating abstract models of complex systems with the intention of improving system performance. Unlike traditional disciplines in engineering and the mathematical sciences, the fields address the role of the human decision-maker as key contributor to the inherent complexity of systems and primary benefactor of the analyses.

Ecomspaces’ operations team is excited to partner with the senior design team to improve the efficiency of the processes on the fulfillment and parcel-forwarding sides of the business. One of the challenges we face as a company is the high level of customization we offer to our customers. As it stands, the outstanding areas of focus include: a review of the locations generation system, a review of the receiving and put-away procedures, optimization of pick routes, and an evaluation of storage layout. The primary goal of the project is to increase throughput and speed while maintaining accuracy to allow for scalability. This project allows for creativity and due to our small size, your solutions have the potential to be rapidly implemented.
