Quintiq's Optimization Technology Beats VRPTW Record
July 18, 2013
How can we prove that Quintiq's optimization technology is No.1?
Easy. By beating the world record.
The Vehicle Routing Problem with Time Windows (VRPTW) is one of the most studied problems in the field of combinatorial optimization. It is a variant of the Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP), first defined by Dantzig & Ramser in 1959. The multiple constraints (delivering to a large number of customers, optimizing the number of trucks used with fixed capacity, finding the shortest route, meeting the time window) create massive logistical complexity. The number of possible routes/solutions exceeds even the number of atoms in the universe.
