Operations research

We work closely with our clients to help them understand, forecast and optimise business operations. Using bespoke and customisable models, we help solve critical problems and answer specific questions.

Our experience and strengths

We have a strong track record working where off-the-shelf modelling solutions are not appropriate, especially with small organisations.

We co-develop models with our clients, with a focus on developing user interfaces that are appropriate and robust for a wide range of roles within our clients’ organisations.

Our experience is mainly with manufacturing processes and vehicle routing, but the approaches that we use suit a wide range of industries.
