What is Optimisation?
The Best Solution
Optimisation is a process that has the power to dramatically improve the way you do business. It allows you to find the best solution to a huge number of day-to-day and strategic business problems.
Using optimisation in your business means you can quickly react to changing conditions, improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your workers.
How it's done
Optimisation is a rigorous approach which takes into account all of the factors that influence decisions in business. This includes modelling of the problem, constraints on problems, and advanced solvers to give you the right solution to the right problem.
A range of Applications
Optimisation has a consistent track record across a wide range of industry and commerce. These include:
Process industries (refining, chemicals, pharmaceuticals)
Energy (oil, gas, coal, etc)
Utilities (gas, electricity, water, telecommunications)
Banking, insurance, finance and securities
Transport, logistics and distribution
E-commerce and ISPs
Trading, procurement and sourcing
About Canary Optimisation
Canary uses advanced linear, non-linear and network optimisation algorithms to deliver your company more for less. By applying mathematics to practical business problems, your organisation can improve its productivity. That means better decisions are made about how to commit assets like capital, people, vehicles, materials, time or facilities. The Canary focus is to dramatically increase business efficiency, competitiveness and performance.
Optimisation and your business
Canary's optimisation technologies allow you to create leaner processes which give you more outputs for less inputs. It gives your business the power to improve key performance indicators while lowering production and distribution costs, and manage rostering more effectively. Optimisation allows your business to gain the competitive edge.
Examining new strategies is a core part of any business - whether it be looking at long term planning or day-to-day operations. Mathematical models allow planning for the future, looking at different scenarios such as 'what happens to my production if demand doubles?', 'is it cost effective to open new plant?', or 'what will be the effect of hiring three new staff'? The projected cost of different scenarios can be found, rather than relying on qualitative measures of performance. Canary's analysis can help your organisation pro-actively investigate opportunities, plans and ideas in a quantitative manner.
The end goal of optimisation is to improve your business. That means higher quality products or services, increased customer satisfaction, and lower costs. Cost savings of 10-50% can be made in many areas of your business, while improving productivity and quality.
Every business is different, and requires different approaches to optimisation. Canary works in conjunction with your business to understand your processes. Each part of your operations are modelled mathematically using advanced algorithms. This modelling can be very detailed - looking at a particular supply chain or transportation problem - or holistic, examining your business as a whole.
