ILOG CPLEX Retail Workforce Scheduling
Most noteworthy, the system manages the daily needs of stores, forecasting customer flows, defining schedules and checkout operations.

Custom Optimization Software

We build optimization software for partners and customers based on our proprietary engine. First of all, it is an optimization engine with the combination of new algorithms on top of IBM ILOG CPLEX. Hence, it can break complex models and difficult MIPs into sub-models. Finally, our engine can solve massive MIP Models in parallel threads.
ILOG CPLEX Manufacturing Optimization

Manufacturing

Generate realistic detailed production plans and schedules in order to meet the inventory levels requested for each finished product. As a result, we manage to improve coordination between raw material, work in progress and finished goods.

ILOG CPLEX Trucking Optimization

Trucking

Create schedules for every driver and truck that minimize the fixed and variable costs of operating the fleet. When schedule disruptions occur, reschedule on the fly to minimize changes to customer commitments, costs and regulatory requirements.

ILOG CPLEX Oil and Gas Optimization

Oil and Gas

Simulate demand evolution, capacity augmentation, natural disasters and network disruptions. Furthermore, generate multiple scenarios and evaluate their trade-offs while monitoring schedule adherence in order to determine necessary assumptions.

ILOG CPLEX Logistics Optimization
Our optimization engine was initially built for scheduling problems. However, it works for any MIP which has a reasonable number of integer feasible solutions. Furthermore, it has been deployed effectively on manufacturing, supply chain and workforce dimensioning problems as well as scheduling applications. Even more, it provides good solutions and optimality measures that are often beyond the reach of traditional optimization methods on large scale MIPs.

Optimization Consulting

By combining our operations research knowledge and industry experience, we provide end-to-end optimization solutions. Consequently, we improve your operational efficiency exponentially while reducing the costs and risks.
1First of all, we will be using an optimization model to analyze your business processes. Furthermore, we will report the conclusions regarding to your existing business optimization status.
2Another, we can perform a study to determine how a new optimization application will benefit your business. Even more, we can recommend a better one that best suits for your operations.
3Finally, we will provide supports and enhancements for your existing optimization applications. Likewise, we can help reducing the costs while improving the performance by using alternatives.

Optimization Consideration

  • High Leverage Resource

    Are there one or two resources that make up a majority of your costs? Maybe its material costs dominate the production costs. So even small percent reductions in material costs can probably yield a large absolute return with almost no equipment changes required. Above all, all that needs to be done is to adjust the recipes with the optimized usage rates of the materials.

  • Flexibility in Resource Deployment

    Even though materials may be your highest cost item, if all production is done via a fixed bill of material, then there is probably little or no opportunity to improve the material costs. That is because the opportunity for optimization comes when the material usage is flexible, where substitute materials are allowed to be used subject to a known set of rules that specify how these substitutions can be made.
