Partially-Ranked Choice Models for Data-Driven Assortment Optimization

The assortment of products carried by a store has a crucial impact on its success. However, finding the right mix of products to attract a large portion of the customers is a challenging task. Several mathematical models have been proposed to optimize assortments. In particular, rank-based choice models have been acknowledged for representing well high-dimensional … Read more

Satisficing Models under Uncertainty

Satisficing, as an approach to decision-making under uncertainty, aims at achieving solutions that satisfy the problem’s constraints as well as possible. Mathematical optimization problems that are related to this form of decision-making include the P-model of Charnes and Cooper (1963). In this paper, we propose a general framework of satisficing decision criteria, and show a … Read more
