Tutorials, Videos and Webinars
Solvers, or optimizers, are software tools that help users determine the best way to allocate scarce resources. Examples include allocating money to investments, or locating new warehouse facilities, or scheduling hospital operating rooms. In each case, multiple decisions need to be made in the best possible way while simultaneously satisfying a number of requirements (or constraints). The "best" or optimal solution might mean maximizing profits, minimizing costs, or achieving the best possible quality. Here are some representative examples of optimization problems:
- Finance/Investment: Cash management, capital budgeting, portfolio optimization.
- Manufacturing: Job shop scheduling, blending, cutting stock problems.
- Distribution and Networks: Routing, truck loading, fleet scheduling.
Simulation/Risk Analysis Tutorial
Quantitative risk analysis is the practice of creating a mathematical model of a project or process that explicitly includes uncertain parameters that we cannot control, and also decision variables that we can control. Monte Carlo simulation explores thousands of possible scenarios, and calculates the impact of the uncertain parameters and the decisions we make on outcomes that we care about -- such as profit and loss, investment returns, environmental results and more. Industries where simulation and risk analysis are heavily used include:
- Pharmaceuticals: Modeling R&D and clinical trials
- Oil & Gas: Modeling drilling projects
- Insurance: Modeling frequency and types of claims
