At the Smith Institute we use prescriptive analytics to provide the most value for our customers. Working closely to understand your needs, we can enable you to make the best decision for your business by giving you a range of best possibilities to choose between. The speed and efficiency of Gurobi means that we can focus on creating the optimal solution without compromising on quality. Our recent optimisation work includes sequential decision-making for nuclear decommissioning, the development of optimal route scheduling and driver rostering for distribution, determining winners and prices in spectrum auctions, and matching supply and demand in electricity networks.
