How to forecast people flow?
In PoDoCo project Juho Kokkala together with KONE applied mathematical methods to forecast people flow in buildings. The project was closely linked to KONE’s vision to deliver the best people flow experience. “I am privileged applying the mathematics for developing KONE’s leading customer experience further” states Juho who is now continuing the work as permanent basis in KONE.
Improving the efficiency of order-picking in distribution centres
In order-picking the pickers drive around the warehouse and pick items according to customer orders. It is a very labour intensive operation and can cause as much as 50% of the total warehousing operating costs. Researchers received a three months dataset from an order picking warehouse and they recomputed all the routes for the pickers using the method, which in average...
A Finite Element Model for Simulating Spark Plasma Sintering Process
A finite element model for simulating the SPS process (temperature gradients, distribution of electric current) was developed to enhance process control and facilitate design of complex SPS geometries.
