The complexity of logistics is manageable – with mathematical methods which have even more to offer…

OPTANO Logistics – Part I

Which decisions does a logistics provider have to make? What are the 7+Rs? And what does the building of the pyramids in Egypt have to do with it all?

Why OPTANO Modeling?

What makes OPTANO Modeling so special? What advantages does this modeling system have to offer? And what exactly is modeling?

Stochastic optimization – the universal solution?

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…

Planning under uncertainty: How does it work?

Is planning under uncertainty manageable by means of robustness and flexibility? And just what do the Ancient Greeks have to do with it?

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?

What-if scenarios in production planning

Working with scenarios is like playing in a sandbox and simply trying things out
