Vaccine Production Scheduling
Thesis project description
Based on a practical application, model and solve a vaccine production scheduling problem. Vaccines are synthesised from raw materials that must be mixed together. The quality of the raw materials deteriorates over time and a number of physical restrictions (I.e, production capacity) constrain the scheduling process. Identify a mathematical model and solution approach.
Managerial value of the research
1. Optimize the allocation of resources such as personnel, equipment, and materials in the vaccine production process. By developing efficient scheduling techniques, you can make the most effective use of your resources, reducing waste and improving overall productivity.2. Effective scheduling strategies can lead to a reduction in production time, enabling you to manufacture vaccines more quickly and meet demand more efficiently. By streamlining the production process, the thesis can help you improve your response to emergencies, outbreaks, or sudden increases in demand.3. Through the research, I can propose methods for optimizing inventory levels and minimizing stockouts or overstocks. By implementing effective inventory management techniques, you can avoid shortages of critical vaccine components and reduce unnecessary inventory holding costs.4. Vaccine production involves a complex supply chain with various stakeholders. The thesis can explore ways to improve coordination and communication among suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, and healthcare providers. By enhancing supply chain efficiency, you can ensure timely delivery of vaccines and improve distribution logistics.5. By optimizing production scheduling, my research can help you identify opportunities for cost reduction. This can be achieved through better planning, resource utilization, and minimizing production downtime. Cost savings can ultimately benefit the company's bottom line and make vaccine production more financially sustainable.6. My thesis can address quality control aspects of vaccine production scheduling, including adherence to regulatory guidelines and quality assurance measures. By implementing robust scheduling practices, the company can ensure that vaccines are produced consistently, meet quality standards, and comply with relevant regulations.
