Using a scientific methodology that combines route optimization with prediction, Norma processes delivery orders based on target optimization objectives, capacity constraints, business rules, traffic rules and traffic predictions to calculate the best-optimized delivery routes.

From our AI Lab - The Science behind Norma
Norma Go is Softec’s propriety AI Vehicle Routing Solution based on genetic computing as a result of extensive scientific research combined with industry experience. We use an adaptive heuristic search technique combined with machine learning to provide optimum results. Norma uses aggregated fitness functions to make sure the best possible solution based on business rules, optimization targets, customer objectives, resource constraints, traffic and other factors are selected.
Norma GO bases its decision on the following settings:
Available fleet capacity
types of vehicles and capacity ranges (volume, weight, units, …)
Compartment configurations (fixed / dynamic)
Access to 3PLs or short-term rentals for excess capacity needs
Pickup/Delivery Location Data:
Time windows (single or multiple per day)
Service Time (fixed or intelligently calculated or predicted with Machine Learning)
Best Timing for Arrival (intelligently predicted with Machine Learning)
Business Rules including maximum driving times, maximum route distance, clustering of routes, working times and driver rest times, multi-trip allowances
Traffic Rules including speed limits, road network constraints for vehicle types, etc
Vehicle type restrictions – prohibitions of certain types to drive to particular locations
Vehicle White List conditions – enforcement of particular vehicles to deliver to specific locations (gate passes or pre-approvals)
NORMA GO can automatically convert addresses into locations and clean up your locations data on the fly. It will help you find solutions in case of incorrect locations. Click Here to learn more about NORMA’s Geolocator.
Once you are ready to go, NORMA will pull outstanding delivery orders at cut-off time (Uploaded with Excel or directly pulled through APIs from ERPs or Order Management Systems).
NORMA GO will optimize against the following objectives:
Number of vehicles
Average cost per ton
With a single click, NORMA GO will produce the best-case routes plan and generate the ideal pick lists/routes with calculated ETAs for each delivery point.
After NORMA responds, you can:
Review the plan in Map and Table format
Review the Plan KPIs
Export Trip sheet in Excel
Export Pick List for warehouse loading instructions and per driver delivery requirements
Export the plan to Altair Delivery Control Tower or to your own Transport Management System
