What is Optessa?

Optessa provides manufacturers with a best-in-class advanced planning and scheduling (APS) software matched only by our commitment to customer service and support. Founded in 2001 with the first implementation in 2003, Optessa is now globally deployed and counts four of the six largest Auto OEMs as its clients. Optessa’s configuration capability allows for modeling most real-world problems out of the box. The patented optimization technology powers a full range of configurations for planning, scheduling, and sequencing, to provide our clients with mathematically guaranteed solutions. We are unique in our ability to define a wide range of problems across industries without the need for custom code and in our ability to solve the problems rapidly considering the entire solution space. The resulting high-quality solutions form the foundation for reliable supply chain management.

The Optessa software easily integrates with any MES, ERP, SCM or S&OP solution already in use by our clients. Optessa is a bolted-on solution, augmenting the capabilities of such systems, while transferring data with ease in both directions. The web-based offering allows our clients to access our software from any browser and screen with an internet connection; be it hosted on cloud or on premise.

Benefits

Users can define their own constraints, in terms of hourly, weekly, or daily bins/buckets, and constraints can be assigned a weight or priority to be taken into account when planning.

Optessa supports multiple penalty functions types for use in the event that a constraint is violated, with users able to select how penalties are applied.

Flexible definition allows line capacity to be expressed in terms of ‘slots per hour/day/week/shift’, ‘available time by shift patterns’, or both in combination, with users able to select different capacities for individual hours/days/weeks to accommodate changes in line capacity.

Users can view and alter the sequence of orders or lots, with the system immediately reporting new penalty costs, and the ability to drill down on any violations.

Multiple ‘what if’ scenarios and simulations can be run, stored, and compared as part of the planning process.
