Food Truck Parking Location Assignments
Analyzed and addressed problems associated with the existing DC Food Truck vending location assignment system
DCRA has identified that food truck owners are dissatisfied because they do not believe the current, lottery based location assignments are fair.
The central issue: How do we define and measure fairness in this problem domain and develop a system that is superior to the existing one.
Analyzed the problem domain
- Defined fairness quantitatively
- Assessed system
Developed alternate methodology
- Designed system based around proposed NBA Wheel draft
- Produced System Design Document
- Built and validated prototype
Compared existing and proposed system through simulation and data analysis
Quantitatively verified vendor perception about existing system
Verification results were satisfactory
Sponsor believes our results can be integrated into a new, functional assignment system in the near future
