Vanguard Optimization Add-on

Allocate Resources Most Efficiently

Vanguard Optimization gives you the ability to perform:

  • Linear Program (LP) optimization
  • Integer Program (IP) optimization
  • Nonlinear, Single-value optimization
  • Stochastic optimization

At the core of Vanguard Optimization is the Stochastic Optimizer, a simulation tool that takes the iterative Monte Carlo process a step further, actually finding and flagging the best inputs to the most complex models. Stochastic Optimizer is uniquely dynamic for two reasons. It is free of the model-characteristic requirements (linearity, discontinuity) that restrict most other optimization tools. And it plugs right into grid-computing setups, letting you allocate spare desktop capacity to enormously complex calculations. These attributes are critical to tackling the toughest resource allocation problems, such as choosing the right product mix to maximize profit given limited raw materials and resources.

Lastly, Vanguard Optimization functions are modular. Each model is able to run as a single component in a more complete analysis. Other features include:

  • Automated data import and structuring
  • Optimization
  • Export data back to business systems

NOTE: Vanguard LP/IP optimization routines support unlimited variables and constraints.
