Special optimisation solutions for special planning problems
Standard planning problems can usually be solved with standard software applications. Very specialised planning problems, on the other hand, often require special algorithms. And the more complex the planning task, the more difficult it is to find a suitable solution. We will be happy to support you in your search for the answer as to whether and how well an optimisation solution with mathematical or heuristic methods can help you.
Regardless of whether you want to optimise your operational performance in order to use your raw materials and resources better and therefore more cost-efficiently on a daily basis. Or whether it’s about optimising your strategic positioning in order to continuously improve your production and/or logistics.
Our consultants’ many years of expertise in the field of production planning and business intelligence, combined with their comprehensive knowledge of the production structure, is an excellent prerequisite for sustainable optimisation success. You can count on us in all phases of an optimisation project:
Orientation phase – sort and evaluate
We are happy to support you in sorting out the problem area and assessing the general feasibility of the optimisation project. In doing so, we examine both functional aspects (e.g. a realistic target definition) and technical aspects (e.g. data availability and quality). On request, we are also happy to help you describe the planning task in a holistic and vendor-neutral manner so that you can tender the implementation precisely and therefore successfully.
Potential phase – evaluate costs and benefits
We help you to translate the potential of an optimisation into reliable figures so that you have a clear view of the costs and expected benefits. In collaboration with your specialist department and your IT department, we create a customised optimisation model that focuses on the key aspects of the planning problem. You can evaluate this optimisation model in detail in a prototype in order to reach a well-founded decision.
Productive phase – realisation of solutions
If the optimisation solution demonstrably provides you with added value and you would like to integrate it into your daily routine, we offer you a software platform for productive use. The optimisation model created during the potential phase can generally be used directly or expanded to include other aspects that are necessary for productive use. We are happy to assist you with the connection to an existing IT landscape by configuring the integrated connectors together with you or by programming a customised interface if required.
