Considers the prototype’s data requirements and describes the information flow analysis, drawing conclusions and offering suggestions, before proceeding to model the problem as a vehicle routeing problem. Describes the development of an heuristic procedure and how it was tested and validated. Summarizes the benefits of the analysis and the prototype’s construction.
