Tournament Scheduling

Creating tournament schedules seems simple, but in practice it can be quite complex. It’s also a great example of optimization. Learn more about the details and tricks of creating tournament schedules in this episode.

Infeasible Problems

At first glance, infeasible problems present a major challenge. Where do the problems come from and how can you recognise and solve them? In this episode, we will explain why you shouldn’t panic about such problems and what options there are for solving them. Have fun with it!

Production Networks

The management of complex production networks is demanding. Often, the necessary transparency is lacking to coordinate demand and production capacities in such a way that goods availability and production costs are in an optimal relationship. How production networks work and how they can be optimized with the help of advanced analytics is what our colleague Marc Johann talks about in his premiere as the second host of “One more thing about…”. Enjoy!

Model Abstraction

It seems virtually impossible to find a model for our decision-making which takes all details into account. In this episode we demonstrate how data abstraction can help to model a problem, thus making it the core of successful optimization.

Scaling up using the Cloud

“Let’s use the cloud to solve it faster…” Sounds easy, but does it really meet the expectations when it comes to solving optimization problems? It actually can, but there are some aspects to think about before and we show which ones they are.

Flow Location Problems

Sometimes optimization specialists combine different existing techniques to tackle a new type of problem. This is the case for flow network analysis and the facility location problem by combining them to flow location networks. Let’s see how that works and what can be solved this way.

linear regression

Optimization and Machine Learning can enhance each other and demonstrate what their combined strength can achieve. A perfect example of this is linear regression. We show you how this works and what you can do with it in this episode.

Metaheuristics

As promised, we don’t settle for regular heuristics: we make them meta! We explain what that means and how it works in our new episode.
