"Greycon has always focused on providing the best possible schedules for our customers, even when it takes a bit longer to compute them”, said Constantine Goulimis, Greycon CEO. “With the inclusion of Gurobi’s state-of-the-art solver, we continue to lead in solution quality, but now deliver those solutions an average of 20% faster for difficult problems. This allows our customers to act on the results sooner, or to consider more alternative scenarios in the same amount of time."
Greycon customers will now benefit from the industry-leading performance of the Gurobi Optimizer, which was designed from the ground up to exploit modern architectures and multi-core processors, using the most advanced implementations of the latest algorithms. This increase in speed applies to all trim optimisation engines across the Greycon suite of products, including X-Trim, opt-Studio and GreyconMill.
“We are very pleased that Greycon has chosen to switch to Gurobi as the optimizer for their suite of applications,” said Dr. Bixby, CEO of Gurobi Optimization. “Like Greycon, we are focused on delivering industry-leading results and continuing to improve our performance over time.”
