FOR THE RECORD

The Hamilton Spectator - - BUSINESS -

Wolse­ley Canada Inc. has part­nered with the Univer­sity of Wind­sor to map the com­pany’s dis­tri­bu­tion net­work. The team at the univer­sity will use in­for­ma­tion about the com­pany’s points of sup­ply chain con­tact along­side data on ma­jor high­ways and rail lines to build the soft­ware-based model.

Once com­plete, the project will pro­vide the Burling­ton-based com­pany with an in­ter­ac­tive model of its sup­ply chain op­er­a­tions. It will also pro­vide grad­u­ate and un­der­grad­u­ate stu­dents in math­e­mat­ics with re­al­world ex­pe­ri­ence in their field.
