Process optimization

Operational processes at the economic optimum

Are there bottlenecks in your operational processes?

A particular resource forms a bottleneck or the staff with the necessary qualifications is not available at the right time in the right workplace?

With scientific-mathematical optimization methods, we offer analysis and consulting on the latest research in the areas of operations research and process management.

1. Analysis of objectives in workshops & interviews

Based on the company’s vision and long-term corporate goals, we analyze the objectives in workshops and interviews together with stakeholders and process owners and derive appropriate performance indicators.

2. Quantitative analysis of the status quo

Quantitative analysis of the status quo is carried out to identify bottlenecks and to determine requirements precisely. Core processes are visualized, the corresponding data processed and transparently visualized using methods of descriptive statistics and graphical data analysis.

3. Development of mathematical models from operations research

The central core competence of the consulting team around Prof. Dr. Jens Brunner is the conception and implementation of mathematical optimization models from the field of operations research. The doctorate-holding experts have many years of experience in solving complex challenges with methods of operations research at the latest level of research. In particular, mathematical optimization models are developed to solve combinational complex problems such as machine occupancy planning or personnel deployment planning. Complex, random dynamic systems, such as processes in a central emergency room, are evaluated by means of simulations.

4. Evaluation and derivation of action alternatives

Resource planning strategies are derived using the mathematical models with the goal of achieving the greatest possible benefit to the customer according to the goals defined in the first phase. In addition, various “what-if” scenarios can be digitally evaluated in a secure environment. For example, the impact of changes in the workforce can be evaluated without compromising operational processes.

5. Implementation

The implementation into live operation is usually carried out through automated resource planning. In this phase, customer-specific individual solutions can be developed, and existing systems integrated. Defining standards in data collection ensures long-term simplification of processes. In addition to resource planning at the economic optimum, our customers benefit in particular through supporting digitization solutions, for example, to simplify communication processes.

The XITASO Difference

Seamless from model to software

Through the seamless collaboration of optimization experts and software developers in our interdisciplinary teams, we bring the models into operationally applicable software early on and can use real feedback from the field, as needed, for readjustment. On PowerPoint slides alone, many things seem plausible.
