Planning and scheduling are important not just for manufacturing. They are key activities for most modern enterprises, and optimization can deliver significant value for services applications as well. The core optimization technology underlying Optessa’s products is so powerful and versatile that it is very broadly applicable, and can be used to model and solve some of the most challenging planning and scheduling problems outside of manufacturing. Examples of non-manufacturing applications addressed by Optessa products include:
- Transportation planning and route optimization
- Work force scheduling
- Academic timetabling
- Oil rig scheduling
- Capital planning
- Portfolio optimization
All these examples incorporate complex trade-offs that at their core can be formulated as combinatorial optimization problems that can be readily solved through Optessa technology.
There are numerous high value use cases in Logistics for Optessa technology, spanning both transportation and warehousing,..
