Optimisation

“Optimisation can uncover valuable insights, delivering faster and higher quality analysis to identify the best solution in highly complex decision situations.”

Optimisation seeks to answer the “what is best” question, targeting a specific objective using a mathematical model with defined constraints, e.g. “maximise my profit while minimising my up-front capital spend”. This sets up a trade-off that the optimisation seeks to find telling you what the best thing is to do “in theory” and provides a mathematical view on how achievable the optimal solution is.

Example use cases.

Allocation of resources

How can I best use my equipment and schedule my resources to service my customers?

● Optimise loading and routing considering capacity constraints, travel distances and delivery service level requirements. Significant capital and operating cost savings can be delivered by understanding how many resources are required of what type and when.

Capital investment planning

What is the best portfolio and investment plan to achieve our strategic goals?

● Supply chains are very complex with a multitude of stakeholders and potentially competing demands. Optimal portfolio selection simultaneously considers all possible options whilst meeting all practical constraints, e.g., physical, technical, financial, and legal.
