Title: NON-LINEAR SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DESTINATION SELECTION
Abstract:
Apparatus and methods for machine-based planning. The apparatus may cluster a plurality of geographically different resources into a plurality of clusters of proximate resources. The apparatus may calculate a cost of transporting each resource to each of a plurality of destinations. The apparatus may map each cluster to one of the destinations to determine a sum of costs of transporting all of the resources to the destinations. The apparatus may assign to each of the plurality of destinations only resources: that are mapped to the destination; for which the destination has sufficient capacity to accommodate the resources; and whose assignment to the destination does not exclude from the destination, by filling the capacity, a different resource that is: mapped to the destination; and has a net cost that is higher than a net cost of the resource of the assignment.
