Optimization Direct

Optimization Direct is a US-UK company of independent experts in optimization.

We have many years in the field and frequently speak at optimization industry events. Our background is in software development, consulting, and academia. We’ve run optimization software businesses – creating the first integrated development environment for optimization.

We recently developed ODHeuristics; a new algorithm designed to run on modern multiprocessor machines. Many cores (24+ ideal) are exploited by the ODHeuristics engine to solve huge models with massive datasets – ideal for the big data area.

We work with many solvers and business partners and are technology and licensing partners with FICO to market FICO XPRESS and IBM to market ILOG® CPLEX Optimization Studio. We have integrated the ODH algorithm into CPLEX, FICO XPRESS, and Gurobi which have proved to have amazing results. On large scale MIPs ODH provides good solutions and optimality measures that are often beyond the reach of traditional optimization methods.

If you have a complex, optimization problem it’s highly likely that our experts can help you.
