Contribution Title

Using Mixed Integer Programming to Match Wineries to Distributors

Conference

Decision Sciences Institute's 2005 Annual Meeting

Year

2005

Description

In a restrictive, increasingly consolidated marketplace, small wineries seek specialty distributors representing lesser-known brands. The variety of wines and their attributes makes matching wineries to these distributors challenging. We present a linear programming application incorporating aspects of classic assignment and transportation problems that provides an interface for matching potential partners.
