Scheduling Optimization in Manufacturing and Services

Planning and scheduling are forms of decision-making that are used regularly in many manufacturing and service industries such as procurement, production, transportation, and distribution to name but a few. The efficient planning and scheduling functions in a company heavily rely on mathematical optimization techniques that allocate limited resources to the activities to be done. This allocation of resources has to be done in such a way that the company optimizes its objectives and achieves its goals such as minimizing the time to complete all activities, minimizing the number of activities that are completed after the committed due dates, and so on. To that end, state-of-the-art optimization solvers play an important role in developing efficient scheduling and planning solutions. Join our interactive webinar to learn about optimization use cases for scheduling in manufacturing and services and the role of optimization solvers in those use cases. Meysam Cheramin, Operations Research Specialist of Cresco International, and Sanjeev Datta, CEO of Cresco International, are the speakers of this webinar. We hope to see you there!
