Abstract: The Procter & Gamble (P&G) Fabric Care business oversees a broad portfolio of products, including household brands such as Tide, Dash, and Gain. We describe a novel analytical framework that uses visual statistical tools and advanced mathematical programming methods, helping P&G determine ingredient levels and product and process architecture to create some of the world's best laundry products. This framework has provided targeted consumer benefits while enabling cost savings in the order of millions of dollars.

Abstract: U.S. policy sequesters livers from deceased donors within arbitrary geographic zones, frustrating the intent of offering livers according to medical urgency. We used a zero-one integer program to partition the U.S. into districts that minimize disparity in access to livers. Redistricting liver allocation would save hundreds of lives and make transplantation more equitable. Our redistricting concept garnered unprecedented unanimous support in the Liver Committee that manages allocation policy.
