Industrial engineering, operations research, and systems engineering are fields of study intended for individuals who are interested in analyzing and formulating abstract models of complex systems with the intention of improving system performance. Unlike traditional disciplines in engineering and the mathematical sciences, the fields address the role of the human decision-maker as key contributor to the inherent complexity of systems and primary benefactor of the analyses.

Comcast Cable is one of the United States' largest video, high-speed Internet, and phone providers to residential customers under the XFINITY brand, and also provides these services to businesses. It provides security and automation services to residential customers. Comcast also offers a wireless cell phone service under the brand Xfinity Mobile. The company has 29 million customer relationships in the United States (39 states and Washington, D.C.)
Comcast purchases settop boxes and routers from OEMs who manufacture in Asia and traditionally have packaged the units in bulk pallets and shipped to West Coast locations. Comcast's operations occur across the county and is growing fulfillment through the retail channel. As the business is shifting, we are looking for a proposal to best optimize shipping lanes to the US and determine the most cost effective packaging configuration: * Bulk product with power supply included * Bulk product without power supply * Product fully kitted in retail packaging
