Given a budget for a particular advertising campaign, this package produces a plan that maximizes total number of exposures to the target population. The package is being used at the Mudra Communication Pvt. Ltd., Ahmedabad (1987).

Programming language used : Pascal.
Code Length : 10,000 lines

Project Management


Given activities and its immediate preceding activities, this package constructs a network using arrow on node notation. (1986).

Programming language used : Pascal.
Code Length : 2,500 lines

Distribution Management

Given various cost parameters of a distribution system, this package produces a plan that minimizes the total transportation and warehousing costs. (1988).

This distribution package was developed on VAX-750 at IIM, Ahmedabad.

Programming language used : Pascal.
Code Length : 20,000 lines

Distribution Management

Given various cost parameters of a single stage warehouse location problem (for the uncapacitated case) it uses lagrangian relaxation based specialized technique for embedded in the branch and bound procedure for producing the optimal location-allocation plan. (1992).

Programming language used : Pascal.
Code Length : 8,500 lines.

MRP Simulation Package

This program reads the essential inputs of a material requirement planning system and allows the user to design his own lot sizing and sequencing heuristics. It carries out simulation for a specified period of time and prints out vital statistics such as theoretical inventory carrying cost, actual inventory carrying cost, set up cost, machine utilization, aggregate lateness, and units lateness. The program is self documented through the use of superior data structures and most appropriate variable names. (1993).

Programming language used : Pascal.
Code Length : 3,000 lines.

Goods Traffic Simulation Package for Indian Railways

This program takes into account various parameters of Indian railway system such as number of stations, connectivity between stations, number of paths available for goods trains between any pair of stations, number and type of goods trains available, yard capacity at a station, given traffic movement profile; and computes the congestion levels, delays in the system and the empty haulage costs of the goods rakes.

Programming Language Used : C

Code Length : 3500 lines
