Key Differentiators

Driving Measurable Benefits for Our Clients
Functionality
Optessa:
Comprehensive, “out of the box” functionality to support a full range of planning & scheduling applications.

Other Solutions:
Limited; required functionality has to be “custom-developed” with separate solutions required for Planning & Scheduling.
Model & Scope
Optessa:
Out of the box support for 23 constraint types capable of modeling all real-world production rules.
The scope can range from enterprise-level to every tier with fully interconnected models.

Other Solutions:
Limited to a few constraints
Output Quality
Optessa:
Schedules generated by proprietary solver based on modern optimization heuristics, yielding optimal schedules

Other Solutions:
Schedules generated by “greedy heuristics” or LP/IP methods that result in sub-optimal quality
Material Stability
Optessa:
Unique bias capabilities that minimize the impact of rescheduling, enhancing material stability

Other Solutions:
Plans and schedules are not robust – can change with every iteration
Complexity & Speed
Optessa:
Unique ability to model and solve all real-world constraints, without the need for manual intervention

Other Solutions:
For large problems can handle only a subset of constraints
Enhancements & Evolution
Optessa:
