The goal of our project was to improve the efficiency of Fundación Paraguaya’s Microfinance and Poverty Stoplight Programs by implementing Industrial Engineering techniques. First, we addressed inefficient planning of client meetings through an Excel-based scheduling tool that optimally groups geographically similar meetings. Based on our results, the scheduling tool has the potential to reduce 19.92% of the total distance traveled. Second, we developed a tool to analyze the rezoning of offices by evaluating the impact of the corresponding reassignment of client committees to their respective zones. If all reassignments are made, the total distance reduction will exceed 2,400 miles. Our two deliverables will be implemented upon completion of our project.
