Workforce Optimization: Lessons from the US Census Bureau

Must-See Video: How Optimization Transformed the 2020 US Census

In assigning, scheduling, and routing your mobile workforce, what costs can be easily avoided? How much money are you leaving on the table? How much can you increase productivity?

In the 2020 US Census, optimization and machine learning techniques automated the scheduling, workload assignments and management of field data collection. Despite the pandemic, natural disasters, and civil unrest, 99.9% of all addresses in the nation were resolved, and a productivity increase of over 80% was achieved along with significant savings. Optimization has helped transform how the US Census will be performed. The US Census Bureau and Princeton Consultants were entered into the INFORMS Franz Edelman Academy, which honors the most extraordinary, impactful initiatives powered by operations research and advanced analytics.

For businesses and organizations with mobile workforces, Princeton Consultants is offering U.S. executives a complimentary assessment to rigorously evaluate workforce assignment processes, identify improvement opportunities, and quantify potential benefits of reengineered processes and custom optimization solutions. Contact us to set up an introductory call to learn more and mutually structure the assessment, which will help executives understand the required business process changes and associated software that can address the most challenging assignment, scheduling, and routing problems.
