1. What risks might UPS face by relying on the Orion system?

·

Systems like Orion can crash or get hacked and that would cause all operations to seize since no one would know where to go. Obviously, they can quickly switch to doing it manually which would be less efficient but still work. If someone wanted to really mess with the mailing system, hacking UPS’s Orion system would get the job done. Systems can also crash if overloaded with work, so UPS needs to have a back up plan at all times in case that happens. Relying on one type of system for everything is a recipe for disaster.

The first thing that comes to mind is Amazon. Specifically, Amazon Prime. They have to figure out how to deliver packages within several days and make sure they get to the right person. The Orion system would help them make their routes as efficient as possible to deliver as many packages as they can in a day.

1. UPS relying solely on ORION is risky because if ORION were to face a technical issue UPS would be seriously hurt. Due to ORION being a computer it is vulnerable to glitches, hacking, and update errors. If one of these errors occurs UPS’s delivery routes could be completely derailed and the company would financially suffer. The example in the video was only 10 miles off and 30 minutes late and was considered to be unacceptable because of the accumulating expenses that would occur. Another issue is changes made in the roads, natural disasters and traffic could possibly hinder ORION’s performance. This wasn’t clarified in the video but could be a cause for concern.

2. I was a Doordash driver for a couple of months this past year and I think ORION would be useful to increase efficiency. This would be particularly helpful when drivers have to pick up multiple orders. When this happens it is up to the driver to choose the order of restaurants and houses they go to first. This ended up being stressful at times and it would have been nice to have a detailed route generated for me within a few seconds. Most importantly, using a system like ORION would greatly increase customer satisfaction for DoorDash. This would then increase driver tips and return customers
