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!

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.

“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.

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.
