dc.description.abstractThis Medication Distribution Problem was based on emergency preparedness for a potential bioterrorist attack against the public. If the event were to take place, efficient scheduling of truck routes would need to be available. Tour Solver was the software used to generate truck routes under different constraints. The results were then used to find the best routing schedule. Nine truck routes were successfully developed for different scenarios of the problem. These scenarios were then taken and further analyzed for scheduling. More scenarios can and should be generated and assessed in future research towards solving this vehicle routing problem. \en
