Need for excellence! Operational excellence with unique optimization, simulation and process control technology!
Manufacturing and Production

Manufacturing plants

Manufacturers are at the center of crucial interactions as they work closely with suppliers of upstream and downstream industries while forming complex networks of tiers and channels. Operational excellence is affected by internal and external events and by the randomness of processes (e.g., urgent and volatile orders, shut downs). Creating optimized production plans while testing their execution in advance can help to exploit assets and resources. Keeping process volatility at a bay is a key issue to reduce costs!


Forecasting, simulation and math optimization
Planning and optimization, simulation and forecasting statistical tools help to anticipating and monitoring volatility while attaining endless improvements and maximizing investment returns.

ACT Operations Research specializes in the following key domains: optimized optimization (lean production and constraints management), simulation for e.g., factory, plans, process (simulation and design for six sigma), real-time optimization (on-line scheduling), flows and faults forecasting.


  • Process flows manufacturing and layout design with simulation
  • Production line simulation and optimization (e.g., bottle-neck analysis)
  • Planning and scheduling (six sigma and lean production with simulation)
  • Demand, process flows and faults forecasting
  • Factory's internal transport optimization (e.g., AGV's dispatching, Traslo optimization)
  • Power consumption simulation
  • Evacuation plan simulation and scaling of emergency buildings (e.g. risk management, disaster recovering)
  • Warehouse dimensioning and optimization
  • Workforce scheduling and simulation.
