Visualizing Optimal Fuel Strategies under Uncertainty
Dr. Lauren Davis
Industrial and Systems Engineering
Natural disasters create unexpected uncertainty. For example, in Florida during a hurricane there is a high peak in demand for fuel. Homeland security is challenged with constantly and consistently meeting the high demand for fuel during a hurricane. In a natural disaster, fuel ports can become inoperable due to the extreme weather conditions (high wind speeds). The objective is to visualize the data of a model that optimizes decision making for Homeland Security during a hurricane. Our visualizations examine schedule optimization, port unmet demand and port ending inventory in the event of a natural disaster.
