BEAVERTON, Ore. – October 3, 2023 – Gurobi Optimization, LLC, the leader in decision intelligence technology, recently spoke with Ari Siesser, Co-Founder and Chief Scientist of Automation Intelligence, a Gurobi Alliance Partner, to discuss how the two companies work together to help other businesses leverage the power of optimization.

Automation Intelligence specializes in developing digital twins. “With a digital twin, we can rapidly prototype and virtually commission robotic systems, allowing us to identify design flaws or issues with the control logic before the physical system is even built,” explains Siesser.

With support from Gurobi’s solver technology, Automation Intelligence optimizes industrial automation so their clients can get the most out of what they already have without having to acquire additional resources—whether their business is in manufacturing, warehousing, logistics, or e-commerce fulfillment. These solutions reduce the risk of innovation for customers, saving them time and money.

“Even a 5% improvement can mean big dollars,” says Siesser. “As we start to look at optimizing decisions with respect to automation, we’re going to see tremendous increases in efficiency across the supply chain. And in order to solve these operational optimization problems, Gurobi is critical.”

Learn how Automation Intelligence and Gurobi use mathematical optimization to help companies overcome strategic and operational challenges, in their post: “Bridging the Gap Between Automation and Optimization.”
