Kevin Tierney's Problem Solving Skills:
Kevin Tierney's Problem Solving Experience:
- Developed a mathematical model for inter-terminal transportation optimization at container ports that supported the port of Rotterdam's strategic decision making process when developing the new Maasvlakte areas.
- Developed a state-of-the-art algorithm configurator called GGA based on genetic algorithms.
- Developed several approaches, both exact and heuristic, for the liner shipping repositioning problem, resulting in solutions $14 million better than our industrial partner in the liner shipping industry.
