                              The following are example of the application of modeling & simulation in
                              decision/analysis partners projects:
    OPERATING COSTS
    REDUCTION THROUGH         1.   A complex mail distribution network model to simulate processing network
    DYNAMIC OPERATIONS             alternatives, and evaluate alternative distribution scenarios,
    SCHEDULING
                              2.   A capacity requirement analysis model to justify the procurement of mail
                                   processing equipment for mail and parcels processing centers,

                              3.   An operational model to determine staffing requirements in a mail
                                   processing center during mission-critical mail dispatch operations,

                              4.   A material handling model to evaluate design alternatives for tray handling
                                   systems in a new lettermail processing center,
5.   A model to dynamically schedule mail processing operations to optimize
                                  resources requirements.

                             6.   An enterprise-wide model to evaluate levels of service impacts on
                                  operational costs – labor, processing, transportation,

                             7.   A model to optimize bundling specifications for publications and flats to
                                  reduce processing and labor costs,

                             8.   A model to evaluate the adequacy of a processing center parking lot prior
                                  to the processing center expansion.

                             decision/analysis partners has also supported executive decision-making by
                             designing and developing simulation models for other industries, including
                             minerals mining, airport baggage systems, batch and job shop manufacturing,
                             and health care.

                             Building on the deep talent of decision/analysis partners, end users are provided
                             with tools to support "what if" experimentation, and evaluate the risks
                             associated with each outcome using dashboard summaries and, when needed,
                             full 3D visualization.

Capability modeling

  • 1. Modeling & Simulation for Decision-Support AT A GLANCE: decision/analysis partners offers deep technical competence in modeling and D/AP’S MODELING EXPERTISE simulation in support of complex postal, mailing and shipping projects, HELPS EXECUTIVES MITIGATE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH including network and process modeling for posts and larger distribution COMPLEX BUSINESS DECISIONS. organizations involving complex material handling, business processes and/or THIS INCLUDES: distribution rules. RATIONALIZATION AND SIMPLIFICATION OF Modeling & Simulation to Mitigate Risk in Decision- DISTRIBUTION NETWORK Making CAPITAL BUDGETING FOR The proper evaluation of alternatives and their consequences is a necessary ACQUISITION OF MAJOR TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS step in the mitigation of risks associated with any major operational decision. Modeling and simulation leverage robust analytical techniques that bring EVALUATION OF ALTERNATIVE TECHNOLOGY managers insights pertaining to each option. Modeling and simulation reduce DESIGNS the cost and time associated with the evaluation of alternatives and with overall decision making. decision/analysis partners brings strong expertise in the OPTIMAL STAFFING FOR MISSION CRITICAL modeling of complex business situations in the postal, mailing and shipping PROCESSES domain under rapid turnaround. IMPACTS OF VARIABLE LEVELS OF SERVICE ON Broad Range of Applications LABOR, PROCESSING AND TRANSPORTATION COSTS The following are example of the application of modeling & simulation in decision/analysis partners projects: OPERATING COSTS REDUCTION THROUGH 1. A complex mail distribution network model to simulate processing network DYNAMIC OPERATIONS alternatives, and evaluate alternative distribution scenarios, SCHEDULING 2. A capacity requirement analysis model to justify the procurement of mail processing equipment for mail and parcels processing centers, 3. An operational model to determine staffing requirements in a mail processing center during mission-critical mail dispatch operations, 4. A material handling model to evaluate design alternatives for tray handling systems in a new lettermail processing center,
  • 2. 5. A model to dynamically schedule mail processing operations to optimize resources requirements. 6. An enterprise-wide model to evaluate levels of service impacts on operational costs – labor, processing, transportation, 7. A model to optimize bundling specifications for publications and flats to reduce processing and labor costs, 8. A model to evaluate the adequacy of a processing center parking lot prior to the processing center expansion. decision/analysis partners has also supported executive decision-making by designing and developing simulation models for other industries, including minerals mining, airport baggage systems, batch and job shop manufacturing, and health care. Building on the deep talent of decision/analysis partners, end users are provided with tools to support "what if" experimentation, and evaluate the risks associated with each outcome using dashboard summaries and, when needed, full 3D visualization. About decision/analysis partners decision/analysis partners is an independent technical and management advisory services firm offering operations management, business strategy, market analysis and technology consulting services in the postal, shipping and mailing industry.
