From data to performances
Based on the power of artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, simulations, and mathematical optimization techniques ACT Operations Research offers robust and innovative solutions to cut costs, improve productivity and service levels, predict trends and behaviors, improve safety, support the care of patients, reduce risks and manage crises.
Franz Edelman Award
ACT Operations Research was awarded as finalists
at the most prestigious Franz Edelman award by Informs
(the leading organization promoting Decision Science and Operations Research).
Operations Research (OR) is the science dealing with the application of advanced analytics to support decisions and generally the governance of processes and systems.
It permits an analyst to find the optimal solution for a wide range of problems. For example to calculate the optimal routing of vehicles, to estimate the optimal planning of resources, to define the optimal quantity for the inventory, to calculate the optimal sales prices of products etc.
A discrete-event-simulation (DES) is used to represent and study the evolution of a system as a discrete sequence of events.
In these type of models, the state of the system changes at specific instants over time. The significant advantage provided by this type of simulation is the capability to capture the operation and the behavior of complex systems. Typically DES is used to analyze a supply chain, factories, distribution centers, warehouses, hospitals, etc. It is the best tool to support process re-engineering.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is usually defined as the application of "intelligent agents", able to perceive the environment (e.g., object identification in the space where a robot is moving or the competitive context and consumer preferences in a market analysis framework) and take actions to maximize chance of success at some goal (e.g., autonomously avoiding collision in an Autonomous Vehicle or correctly estimate the impact of a price range).
These abilities are mostly linked to Machine Learning (ML) through which such agents learn from their “experience” and external inputs.
Forecasting is the process of making predictions of the future based on past and present, historical data and most commonly by analysis of trends.
It is a systematic attempt to understand the future performance of a business or the behavior of a system. The understanding of the influencing variables, is an important component to improve the quality of the forecast.
ACT Operations Research is since 1996 a reliable partner for Control and Automation Projects.
Our Process&Control division is qualified in the design of plant control, automation and protection, in simulation and dynamic control of industrial processes in different fields like ENERGY, PETROCHEMICAL and OIL&GAS. We are constantly up-to-date with industrial technologies’ state of the art, as well as international standards and normatives evolution.
