The constraint programming and constraint-based local search capabilities of Comet will give us the ability to enhance and expand our portfolio of optimization solutions.
Providence, RI (Vocus) July 31, 2009
Dynadec, a developer of next-generation optimization technology, today announced that N-Side, a developer of innovative decision-making solutions for global industries, has adopted the Comet™ technology platform. N-Side will use Comet to develop sophisticated, high-quality optimization solutions for a variety of applications.
Comet is the world's most comprehensive software platform for solving complex optimization problems. Comet combines the methodologies used for constraint programming, constraint-based local search, and dynamic stochastic combinatorial optimization. Its high-level modeling environment, in combination with its hybrid optimization capabilities and native parallelism, represents a significant technical breakthrough for the industry.
"The N-SIDE team is always looking to extend the panel of optimization tools they master and can integrate in their end-user OR-based applications. In its continuous effort to complete this panel, N-SIDE decided to adopt Comet as a promising solution for complex optimization problems and integrated modeling," said Philippe Chevalier, N-Side's chief technology officer. "The constraint programming and constraint-based local search capabilities of Comet will give us the ability to enhance and expand our portfolio of optimization solutions."
"We are pleased that N-Side has chosen to license the Comet platform to help it address the growing complexity of its customers' challenges," said Dynadec Chairman Christian Heidelberger. "N-Side can leverage Comet's capabilities with its own extensive experience in operational research and process optimization to provide the highest quality solutions possible."
N-SIDE delivers innovative decision-making services and solutions to help companies obtain the maximum efficiency from their resources. With the increasing pressure on resource utilization, companies in a variety of industries are turning to N-SIDE to deliver projects that achieve impressive ROI. N-SIDE is particularly active in the steel, pharmaceutical, energy and logistics industries. For more information, visit http://www.n-side.be. N-SIDE has offices in Belgium, USA and Taiwan.
Dynadec develops next-generation business decision optimization solutions that enable enterprises to solve their most challenging and complex operational problems.
