ILOG CPLEX Optimization Consulting
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.
Here is quick list of some of our recent engagements:
We developed a strategic planning application that produces a least cost plan for building strategic inventories. In addition, it provides guidance on the recipes to be used in the plants that would support that inventory plan.
We developed production planning system that produces a least cost plan to cover production starts in all phases of the production from wafer fab through final assembly and test.
We designed and deployed a solution for hypermarket that helps dimensioning and scheduling the workforce of 300 employees.
