Best of Both Worlds – The combination of both solution procedures: Custom heuristics and mathematically precise procedures

Custom Heuristics vs Standard-Solvers: Part II – Mathematical optimization procedures with a standard solver

Solving optimization problems with mathematically precise procedures and by deploying standard solvers

Custom Heuristics vs Standard Solvers: Part I – Custom Heuristics

What is the right solution strategy for a specific problem? Custom heuristics are one option…

Operations Research in Everyday Life

Whoever believes that Operations Research is only something for mathematicians is wrong. We encounter applied mathematics in the form of OR every day…

Stochastic optimization – the universal solution?

An ideal planning instrument to guard against uncertainty? Stochastic optimization – the final step towards optimum planning…

Scenario generation – the way to achieve optimum planning

For the future, only one thing is certain: Things never turn out as planned – unless you are prepared…

The OPTANO Story – 360°OR Intelligence

The OPTANO Story continues: We have created an all-round package which ensures 360° OR-intelligence, helping to solve optimization problems.

The Complexity of Things

We often come across the term “complexity” when we talk about a problem. But what actually makes a problem “complex”?

Systems of Production Planning (Cos we dig ’em!)

When it comes to the topic of software systems for production planning, things can become confusing – one abbreviation after another. What does they all mean and how does they all connect?

Production planning with priority scheduling rules

Acheiving KPIs on production planning with priority scheduling rules? Or do you get better results with mathematical optimization?
