Shipping algorithm

After several years of shipping with Direct Shipping Company (DSC), Aeroneering Technologies (AT) has decided to change their shipping company. As of lately, DSC has not been meeting the companies shipping needs because they have had problems with late arrival times. AT needs a shipping company that consistently arrives at the time they promise to avoid costly production problems.

To help AT determine the best shipping company to hire, your task is to design a procedure to rank potential shipping companies for the job. AT has provided some historical data from some shipping companies to help you start to develop your process and present your initial ranking. Brainstorm at least three different ways in which to analyze the shipping data. Once you select your method, be sure to use your other ideas that you did not select to help justify why your process is better.

AT is in the process of gathering more data and identifying more shipping companies. After they have more time to gather information and you present your initial proposal for the process, they will provide you with more information for further analysis. Since they are in the data collection process they would like to know: If you could have other information about the potential shipping companies, what information would you like? (Answer this question at the top of your submitted proposal/submission.)

Your job is to develop a reusable computational model that will determine a suggested ranking of the provided shipping companies from best option to hire to worst. You must first provide a written description of your model, then provide a pseudo code – high-level plan how you will code your solution, and lastly provide a coded solution (implementation of your model – a computational model). Keep in mind your model must be developed in a way that it will work for various numbers of shipping companies and data for each shipping company (meaning your model should make sense for both the data provided and for other potential values).

In your written submission, you must describe your process/model for ranking the shipping companies along with the resulting ranked order of the shipping companies generated by applying your model to the sample data. Be sure to include additional quantitative results as appropriate to demonstrate the functioning of your model. Also include your reasoning for the each step (justifications/rationale), as well as any other ideas you had for the steps in your procedure.

Your pseudo code – for this submission you must complete the Engineering Process (step 7 only), as described in the document. Your submission MUST BE TYPED or drawn in a computer program (e.g., PowerPoint, Word). Throughout your algorithm you must explain the corresponding step/s and why you solved the problem the way you did – meaning you must explain your rationale for designing the step the way that you did (refer to the example provided in the image below). In addition to your algorithm, you must provide the outputs of your solution based on the provided data (Excel file).
