Advanced predictive-analysis-based decision-support engine for logistics

Project description


Intelligent information management
Enabling strategic planning coupled with instant decision making to provide vision in a blizzard of data

Logistics networks accumulate OVER 1 BILLION new items of information per month (customer orders, pallet-vehicle movement, GPS data, postcodes, depot data, etc.), generated every minute of each day by thousands of pallets travelling on hundreds of trailers for more than one million customers under hundreds of thousands of postcodes, each with multiple different service requirements. Patterns and dependencies in 50 million or more data elements can only be analysed by intelligent data-mining approaches linked to strategic decision making based on longer term analyses of billions of pieces of information.

ADVANCE will develop an innovative predictive-analysis-based decision support platform for novel competitive strategies in logistics operations. It will provide a dual perspective on transport requirements and decision making dependent on the latest snapshot information and the best higher-level intelligence. Our software framework will be available open-source, as this way, low initial investment will encourage also smaller enterprises to exploit the solution. Also, previously unidentified needs will receive better coverage as development can proceed in close collaboration with the users.
