Analytics & Optimization for Supply Chain

Analytics & Optimization for Supply Chain

Solve complex supply chain network problems on a flexible platform while empowering end-users with what-if scenario capability.

“Because the Xpress Optimization Suite can quickly model large-scale, complex problems, users of Production Scheduler can make more accurate business decisions and updates to what’s happening in the plant and market more frequently.”

- Jeff Kelly, Solutions Architect, Honeywell Process Solutions

“Xpress is very easy to use, even for people with little or no computer programming experience. It’s easy to build models for all kinds of problems that integrate well with the software solvers that create the schedule solutions.”

- Jeff Kelly, Solutions Architect, Honeywell Process Solutions

“Using advanced analytics to manage the supply chain and reduce costs has become imperative. FICO Optimization has been critical to supporting the optimization needs at Nestlé USA.”

- - Shan Collins, Vice President of Planning and Center of Excellence with Nestlé USA’s Supply Chain

“FICO’s optimization software is clearly next-generation and their expertise and proactive engagement have gone a long way in making this project successful.”

- - Rishi Amrit, Process Control Engineer at Shell
