Chuck Cummings LGO '14: Internship impact at Amazon's transportation group

Chuck Cummings (LGO '14) talks about coming to LGO and his six-month internship at Amazon's transportation group:

I attended the Unviersity of Kentucky in mechanical engineering. Before coming to MIT I worked at GE Appliances as a lean supplier development manager, traveling into suppliers to teach them lean principles and practices.

I came to LGO because I was looking for the world’s best operations management and leadership program. I’m earning my MBA and a Master’s in mechanical engineering.

At Amazon, on the first day I was presented with an opportunity to improve how Amazon selects carriers for their inbound transportation from vendors to the fulfillment centers. I noticed they were optimizing for lowest cost, but they were constrained by the date when the vendors were ready to ship. I saw an opportunity to improve by focusing on the time when Amazon needs the item to stay in stock, and consider delaying the shipment for a few days to improve flexibility and cost. This would allow Amazon to reduce transportation costs by consolidating shipments from one or more vendors, while maintaining their performance level.

The two key aspects I remember from the internship were that I got the opportunity to test the LGO skills and leadership traits I’d picked up from classmates and faculty, and that I had the chance to try things out to see what worked and what didn’t. I accepted a position with Amazon and am going into their Pathways operations leadership rotation program after graduation.

Is it possible to convert your raw data to Rinex in another format(dbx, geodb, or gsi ?
I'm using the same Leica Geo Office software and going through the same steps in your video but wont let me export to Rinex. Trying to convert my static shots into Rinex.
This video has been the closest i've got to converting my raw data. I'm the only one in my company that knows how to operate the GPS and also self teaching myself how to use geo office.
On the Point ID bar I noticed yours has GNSS type. Next to Duration and Type. Mine does not show it.
Thanks.
