Webinar abstract

The world is full of planning problems—scheduling employee shifts, assigning delivery cars to routes, scheduling classrooms for course exams, and assigning manufacturing tasks to machines—just to name a few. Each of these problems can have dozens, or even hundreds, of interconnected constraints.

Solving such problems optimally is key to your business success. The technology and knowledge to do so has been available almost exclusively to large enterprises. Until now.

Powerful—yet accessible and easy to use—tools are now available to help any size enterprise optimize business resource planning.

Join us for this webinar to learn:

  • Basic planning concepts.
  • When to choose heuristic or metaheuristic optimization algorithms.
  • How to overcome scalability challenges.
  • How to quickly solve a wide range of common planning problems using the OptaPlanner planning engine and advanced rules engine functionality in Red Hat JBoss BRMS.
