About this internship

One of our recent projects was solving a Vehicle Routing Problem for an international customer. We have developed an application to support them with their planning, and one important part of the software is the optimizer: the automated process of determining which orders should be assigned to which truck, and in what sequence the truck should visit the addresses, while minimizing the total distance, late orders and other key performance indicators, while sticking to the customers’ specific rules.

The topic of this internship is to design and implement an optimizer for this VRP for this customer. You are free to choose any optimization technique of your choice. We will provide you with a current plan the customer is currently using on an average day, and the plan our optimizer has created. The goal is to obtain a plan with a total score which is better than their current plan, and potentially even better than our current optimizer result.

As an intern of The Logic Factory, you will be working under the direct supervision of an Algorithm Expert. He or she will help guide you by acting as your coach, mentor and sparring partner. This is a full-time assignment for a period of approximately 6 months, during which we will support you in writing a thesis on this or a related subject matter. The first few weeks will consist of a training, where you will get to know the core software and programming language.

Internship requirements

  • Degree focus in software implementation services, supply chain management, optimization or the like.
  • Currently enrolled in a master’s program
  • A strong understanding and interest in a career in supply chain logistics, planning and optimization.
  • Experience with one or more (object oriented) programming languages.
  • Self-starter and the ability to manage your own schedule with little oversight

The Logic Factory offers a competitive internship compensation package. As part of the selection process we will ask you to give a presentation on your understanding of the topic and the optimization techniques used.
