ICRON - Gurobi partnership brings true optimization power!
PRESS RELEASE

Today ICRON and Gurobi proudly announce the signing of a global partnership. This partnership brings new energy to the market. First of all, ICRON’s and Gurobi’s R&D specialists will join forces and knowledge in order to continuously improve the quality of the solution. They will the align more and more in the near future.

The partnership will bring serious customer benefits. For example, Gurobi updates will be automatically done within ICRON. Gurobi’s specialist will put emphasis on the specific problems ICRON consultants come across in the market. ICRON will add several Gurobi specific capabilities to the ICRON modeling engine, so the two products will be more integrated. Eventually this will provide customers the capacity to solve more complex problems, even faster.

Although ICRON prefers Gurobi, it is still possible to integrate other solvers with ICRON. For example, when there are very specific customers wishes or needs, or when the customer already has another solver installed.

About optimization and solvers

ICRON supports a number of problem solving techniques, some of them are heuristics, some are rule based algorithms and some are optimization algorithms. The specific type of optimization problems that we deal with are linear and integer mathematical problems. ICRON often uses such problem solving algorithms and modelling techniques for especially Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) and Capacity Planning (CP) tactical level of planning. The longer the time horizon is, a larger part of the network is involved and therefor the financial impact is significant. Even a small increment of for example just one percent change can have a serious long term financial impact. For these types of problems and challenges optimization provides a very good approach, because you know that the solution you get out of an optimization based algorithm is going to have a big impact on the overall solution quality. Other techniques like heuristics don’t deliver enough quality. If you are planning a value of for example billions of euro’s, then you need the best solution with the highest quality you can get.
