Optimization

Optimization graphicOptimization is a discipline that uses mathematics and computer science techniques to solve complex business problems whose results depend on hundreds, thousands, or even millions of interconnected variables.

For example, in a geographically dispersed manufacturing concern, researchers might use optimization to determine how many plants are needed, where they should be, and what each of those plants should manufacture.

Or, to take a transportation example, one might use optimization to create the best possible crew schedule, taking into consideration routes that need to be manned.
