Retail Network Optimization at Scale

Presented by the LSC Division
June 29, 4 - 5 p.m. EDT
Presenter: Amitabh Sinha from the Modeling and Optimization group at Amazon. 

Omnichannel retail networks present optimization challenges that are orders of magnitude more complex than pre-Internet retail because the actions within the retailer's scope (such as where to fulfill each order from) have large decision spaces but must be done efficiently given the pressure from customers and competitors on cost, speed and selection. One approach to such challenges is to decompose the decision space into large components and build mechanisms to coordinate those components towards a goal of being jointly optimal. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of some of the decision space decompositions in Amazon's network, along with a more detailed look into one specific decomposition.
