Improvement & optimization

Optimization 

Expertise

When a system is too complex to be analyzed statically or a future system under design, it is necessary to rely on high-performance tools and methods as well as a team of experts in the field of flows and processes. Our expertise will lead you through improvement and sizing initiatives towards operational excellence. On the one hand, we focus on quick wins by improving the performance and the operation of your system. On the other hand, we enhance to reach the last gains achievable using more advanced tools such as optimization algorithms.

Possible application

Optimization of people flows

ProcSim can help hospitals to optimize the patient flows (entry and exit of the operation room) when facing an increase in opening time slots in operating rooms, for instance.

Empirical

N

Thorough understanding of current and future problems and needs

N

“Field” approach of a complex system

N

Use of Lean Management tools and methods:

DMAIC, Ishikawa, 6M, 8D, statistics, Eisenhower Matrices

N

Simulation of different scenarios

Design Of Experiment

(DOE)

N

Methodological approach for the analysis of a complex system

N

Maximization of the information collected on a system in a minimum of simulations

N

Optimization

N

For multi-dimensional problems optimization, we use artificial intelligence optimization algorithms, more precisely in the field of metaheuristics (tabu search, genetic algorithm,…)

N

We propose a personalized approach adapted to your business, by customizing or developing algorithms which fit your constraints and specificities. In comparison to a software, a customized algorithm provides better solutions in term of quality of the obtained solutions, computing time and robustness.
