Decision Support

We advise you on decision support processes. Our competences include the development and implementation of interactive decision support tools, especially the multicriteria optimization.

Optimal Utilization of Gemstones

The beauty of gemstones only gets revealed with the optimal cut. With modern methods of mathematical optimization we developed cutting solutions, that obtain up to 30 percent more mass of the raw material.

Mathematics in Radiation Therapy

In Radiation Therapy a good compromise between tumor control with sufficiently high doses and avoidance of complications by sparing the healthy tissue has to be found. In the planning process, the clinician searches for the compromise that best suits the patient.

Optimization

The core competence of the department of Optimization is to develop individual solutions for planning and decision problems in logistics, engineering sciences and life sciences in close cooperation with customers. The methodology is based on the coupling of:

Simulation
Building models or data based virtual structures under consideration of restrictions and free parameters. Identification of measures for quality and costs in order to evaluate and optimize the structures under discussion.

Optimization
Development and implementation of individual optimization methods to calculate best possible solutions. Of particular interest are multi-criteria problems with conflicting cost and quality indicators, integration of simulation and optimization algorithms.

Decision Support
Consulting in structuring decision support processes Development and implementation of interactive decision support tools, in particular for multi-criteria optimization problems.

Fields of Activity

 

Process Engineering

Ongoing change in availability and price of raw materials and commodities ask for continuous improvement of current and for development of new processes in the chemical industry by modelling, simulation and optimization.

 

Medical Therapy Planning

When planning a therapy, different competing quality criteria like prospects of treatment success, risk of side effects and costs have to be considered.

 

Model Learning and Smart Data

Model-based optimization with reliable models could lead to significant improvements of processes in practice.

 

Production Planning and Resource Efficient Production

We offer the development of efficient strategies to create and adapt production plans and schedules.

 

Layout and Cutting Problems

An efficient and cost-saving production process demands a maximum utilization of resources.

 

Supply Chain Networks

The strategic design of a supply chain network is a fundamental component for the development of successful tactical and operational plans.
