OPTIMisation using Intelligent Simulation Tools

The overall aim of this proposed multi-discipline (industrial engineering and computer science) project is to leverage the effectiveness of the Swedish industrial and service sectors, by introducing the state-of-the-art simulation technology, namely simulation-based intelligent optimisation, to their system design and daily operations. The underlying mechanism is to develop a software environment, called OPTIMISE (OPTIMisation, Intelligence and Simulation Environment), which tightly integrates DES systems with AI-based optimisation tools and Web services that are integrated with the companies’ information systems for valid simulation and optimisation runs.
