Frequently Asked Questions

What is Data Science?
Data science is the practice of turning data into actions. This is accomplished through the creation of data products, which provide actionable information without exposing decision makers to the underlying data or algorithms.
What is the Decision Recommendation Engine (D.R.E.)?

DRE is the foundation on which all BulkSource data science solutions are built. DRE includes the data and cloud computing technology that allow the BulkSource data science team to create and productionalize all kinds of models and data products that live within BulkSource software.

What data can you use?
  • Asphalt bid optimization to maximize profit margin while not sacrificing bid win-rate
  • Forecast product demand and production requirements
  • Truck/driver job assignment to minimize delivery costs
  • Improved driver safety using weather forecasts and driver hours in recent days
  • Predicted production delays based on forecast weather events
How do we use Data Science to help our business?

This depends on your current analytical maturity, but we typically recommend focusing on the one area of your business where you have the most uncertainty or the most significant opportunity for automation. We can then help determine how to solve the problem in an actionable way.
