Miss HO Wing Hang (Iris), who is a graduate student of the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE), received the award of champion of “CILTHK Logistics & Transport Student Final Year Project Award 2017”, an open competition run by The Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport Hong Kong (CILTHK).
Iris, who graduated from the BSc (Hons) in Logistics Engineering with Management (LEM) programme in 2017, won the competition with her final year undergraduate project entitled “Design of a follow up treatment scheduling system for optimizing the routing of home care nursing staff in the healthcare industry”, which was supervised by Dr K.L. Choy.
The student project provides an optimal solution for scheduling the home care nursing staff for a case company. The performance was validated in terms of service satisfaction from the elderly and work satisfaction of the nurses. In regard to the rapid aging population and limited healthcare resources, the proposed method enables further enhancement in providing high service quality and cost effective operation management in healthcare industry.
The competition is an annual event organized by the CILTHK, and is open to all final year undergraduates who are studying CILTHK accredited programmes with their individual thesis or group project appraised at Grade A. It aims to celebrate and highlight undergraduate students contributing the Best Practice Development in the field of Logistics or Transportation by recognizing their outstanding academic work.
Congratulations again to the winner and we are very proud of our student for the excellent project work and performance.
