Currently, maintenance planning in the railroad domain is predominantly performed manually and involves: Crew scheduling (assigning maintenance tasks to crews dependent on skill set) and job shop scheduling (assign time slots for vehicles to depot workstations). These activities should be synchronised and coordinated with vehicles revenue generating activity (where the vehicles are scheduled to transporting goods or passengers). Due to the substantial fixed costs involved, improved planning is expected to generate significant cost savings.
We are the research partner in Spacemaker's innovation project OptiSite. OptiSite will make Spacemaker a global leader in software tools for building design and site planning. In the project we improve and develop optimisation and AI technology to assist property development.
It is very important with good control when feeding farmer salmon in sea cages. The growth potential is not met with too little feed, while too much feed is bad for both economy and environment.
SOCRATIC is a project creating a platform for citizens and/or organisations to collaboratively do social innovation. The project develops a social innovation methodology along with supporting collaborative ICT system for supporting crowd based social innovation. The project pilots them in two real life scenarios.
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.
