Learning solvers and be done

To the untrained eye, it is not immediately obvious whether using a solver is an easy step or impossible. Let’s take a look at problem complexity, scalability to our problem size.

How to crash a project

There are many ways to make a project go awry. In today’s video, we explain three basic rules that almost guarantee your optimization project will screw up. If you’re a fan of epic project failures: Here comes the recipe!

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.

Heuristics

Heuristics – is this just another buzzword? Why is it used so often when talking about optimization and what does it have to do with pizza? We explain what a heuristic is and how it works.

Carbon Emissions

Most of the time, when we talk about optimization, it’s about cost, that is, money. But with optimization you can achieve so much more than just saving money: For example, minimizing Co2 emissions. We show how it can be done.

Simulation vs. Optimization

Simulation and optimization are two terms that are often used almost synonymously. Yet they are two fundamentally different techniques. Our new episode “One more thing about…” explains the difference.

Phase 3: the fully functional product

Optimization projects are complex and for our customers every optimization project is a journey into unknown territory. That’s why we divide our projects into 3 phases: the prototype, the minimum viable product and the fully productive product. After we have built a prototype in phase 1 and the Minimum Viable Product in phase 2, now comes the freestyle: all additional wishes and requirements are built in.

Phase 2: The MVP

Optimization projects are complex and for our customers, every optimization project is a journey into uncharted territory. How can we make sure, that our projects are going in the right direction? We divide our projects into 3 phases: the prototype, the minimum viable product and the fully productive product. After the prototype in the last video, let’s see why we have phase 2 for the minimum viable product.

Phase 1: The Prototype

Optimization projects are complex. How can we make sure, that our projects are going in the right direction? We divide our projects into 3 phases: the prototype, the minimum viable product and the fully productive product. Let’s see what the first phase is about and what we achieve with it.
