We are currently 18 researchers, some of whom also work as senior software engineers. For the past 20 years, we have been developing optimisation methods, software prototypes, and libraries and components, and we have built a strong international level of competence and publication record in optimisation. Our software libraries contain a range of different solution methods (exact and approximate) that have been refined over many years. (We do work with the main commercial solvers as well.) In recent years, we have also developed our own discrete event simulator. We conduct basic and applied research on
- and timetabling problems.
Our main market areas are transportation: road, maritime, and aviation; healthcare; sports; building and infrastructure; and finance. We commercialise our results through spin-off companies and software vendors and sometimes sell directly to end users (industry and the public sector).
Intersted in working with us: If you have relevant background and is interested in working at SINTEF Optimisation, do not hesitate to contact me directly. Either send me your CV and CoverLetter (tomas.nordlander AT sintef.no) or give me a call (+47 98824892).
The CO2REOPT project aims at developing methods and tools for full external transport integration where suppliers, manufacturers and customers share a fully integrated and optimized intermodal supply chain.
The goal of the SmartPower project is to demonstrate the usefulness of modern optimisation methods for demand respons applications in energy market. To this end, we develop a prototype for optimised Power Matching/load balancing in large scale Smart Grids, a highly complex optimisation problem.
Next Generation Decision Support Tool
Enabling better collaboration between humans and decision support systems in time-critical complex domains
The 15th workshop of SweConsNet, the Network for Sweden-based researchers and practitioners of Constraint Programming
DynamITe competence project
New optimisation models and solution algorithms are needed to develop systems and services for intermodal personal itinerary planning and vehicle routing that handle dynamics effectively and efficiently.
The BONVOYAGE project aims at designing, developing and testing a platform optimizing multimodal door-to-door transport of passengers and goods.
Norwegian researchers make European air traffic more efficient
Many major European airports are unable to expand. This means that aircraft departures, arrivals and surface movements will have to be speeded up. A Norwegian system designed to make all airport movements more efficient is tested in Hamburg, and at Arlanda in Stockholm and Charles de Gaulle in Paris.
Optimal fixture scheduling
With help from SINTEF, the northern Norwegian company Profixio is aiming to become a world leader in fixture scheduling for handball, football and volleyball tournaments.
