  • Type : Industrial Contributed Talk
  • Abstract : A logistics operator adopted smart lockers to distribute 150 commercial tools such as tablets and scanners to employees, working in 3 shifts. The lockers gather significant data like tools deficiencies, breakdowns, usage time, punctuality. The assignment policy to deliver tools must minimize downtime using two figure of merit, one classifying employees according to their ability to handle tools, and another measuring the frequency of deficiencies and breakdowns. The proposal is inspired in genetic algorithms.
