Technician Routing & Scheduling Demo

Webinar Summary

In this session, we will share the latest Jupyter Notebook Modeling Example featuring a Technician Routing & Scheduling Demo. We will showcase a mixed-integer programming model to simultaneously optimize the technician routing and scheduling (TRS) decisions at a telecommunications firm. Example scenarios and solution visualization will be demonstrated.
