The OptQuest add-in for Simio is built on a truly unique set of powerful algorithms and sophisticated analysis techniques including metaheuristics optimization, evolutionary algorithms, statistical analysis, tabu search and scatter search, to name a few. As a result, OptQuest enables users to shift from simplistic “What if?” analysis to powerful “What’s best?” analysis.
Optimization technology allows analysts to search for optimal solutions to complex business and engineering problems.
The OptQuest® Engine, OptTek Systems, Inc.'s optimization software, enables you to find the best answer to questions such as:
Investigating every possible scenario can be extremely time-consuming and, in many cases, impossible. The OptQuest Engine replaces the inaccuracy of trial-and-error with a potent search engine that pinpoints the best decision. Users can quickly determine what combination of variables results in achieving their objectives.
The OptQuest Engine is an optional add-in for Simio Simulation and Scheduling software that incorporates metaheuristics to guide its search algorithm toward better solutions. This approach remembers which solutions worked well and recombines them into new, better solutions. In addition, this technique does not get trapped in local solutions or get thrown off course by noisy (uncertain) model data.
The OptQuest Engine combines Tabu search, scatter search, integer programming, and neural networks into a single, composite search algorithm providing maximum efficiency in identifying new scenarios. OptTek's well-researched technology has been shown to be orders of magnitude faster than other approaches. The OptQuest Engine is also flexible, intelligent, and easy to use. And, according to experts in the field, it is the most reliable optimization software on the market today.
