Description

Amazon has invested $60 billion in building out fulfillment warehouses, leasing airplanes and buying delivery vans. The retailer already delivers half of its own packages and could become a major competitor for the fulfillment business of other e-retailers in the years ahead. Amazon delivers 2.5 Billion packages per year. Without proper planning and optimisation it will be nightmare to manage such a gigantic task.


Typically each delivery person has few packets to deliver but has many combinations he/she can use to complete the delivery. Also, time among destinations fluctuates during the day due to traffic, weather, accidents, or other events. Thus, it is important to recommend a optimised route to delivery person, so that he/she can save time and resources.


A genetic algorithm (GA) is a method for solving both constrained and unconstrained optimization problems based on a natural selection process that mimics biological evolution.


In this session understand optimization problems and how to solve them using Genetic Algorithm.

1.1 Introduction to Amazon

Amazon.com, Inc. is an American multinational technology company that focuses on e-commerce, cloud computing, digital streaming, and artificial intelligence. The year was 94′ and Bezos was working diligently on Wall Street. At 30 years old, he began to see the internet revolution take place, and made the decision to quit his job and start an internet company.


“The wake-up call was finding this startling statistic that web usage in the spring of 1994 was growing at 2,300 percent a year. You know, things just don’t grow that fast. It’s highly unusual, and that started me thinking, “What kind of business plan might make sense in the context of that growth?”


After making a list of the ‘top 20’ products that he could potentially sell on the internet, he decided on books because of their low cost and universal demand. It turns out, it was just the beginning.....
