EMEA News: Increasing interest from Oil,chemical and Gas Industry
In talking with our customers and prospects in the OCG industry in Western & Central Europe as well in Middle-East and Africa, they all seem to acknowledge that AIMMS is extremely valuable for optimizing their business resulting in substantial savings and increased margins. Some modeling and optimization examples in AIMMS are Upstream (non-linear) models (reservoir performance, physical systems), Downstream Operational models (tank transport optimization, supply vessel optimization, fleet optimization), Refinery Optimization models (multi-period blending, logistics & maintenance optimization, workforce optimization) and Corporate models (capital allocation optimization).
Contact us and we can help identify new AIMMS models for optimizing your business.
EMEA Events: AIMMS LindedIn and Google Groups If you have technical questions or want to share ideas with other AIMMS users you can always post a discussion on our AIMMS LinkedIn or Google Groups site.
