Turf Maintenance

The Analytics Centre of Excellence (ACE) is working with the Neighbourhoods Branch of the Community Services Department to develop a model that will optimize turf maintenance across the city.

The project aims to decrease costs and improve efficiency of turf maintenance service by improving assignment of heavy equipment to different parks and turf areas. ACE is using advanced analytics techniques to recommend workload balance and routing based on different factors such as travel times, mower capacity, and mower inventory.

The results of this analysis will help in developing plans and strategies for future yard locations and heavy equipment positioning to minimize costs and improve efficiency.
