Route Optimization and Onboard Systems Implementation (2006-11)

ROC staffutilized and implemented two route optimization software applications for the routing of curbside residential waste collection and for commercial waste collection. The project was the spearhead of a larger program to implement onboard monitoring and event tracking systems on LFUCG collection trucks. After extensive development of a customer database for waste collection, the draft routes went through a rigorous evaluation and in-field testing process to verify the exact sequence of every customer. The two route optimization software systems were integrated into both the LFUCG’s internally developed customer service and operations dispatching system and the third party onboard computer system.ROC staff member, Kevin Callen, working for a prior employer, was the project manager and technical lead on the complete re-routing and collection schedule change task for the LFUCG.
