AI planning: Top 3 use cases and benefits

Rivedi il webinar del 24 marzo 2021
Jump to section

Planning optimization—not machine learning—is the most profitable AI technology.

Running a business comes with many planning challenges, such as vehicle routing problems, maintenance scheduling, employee rostering, and task assignment. Find the quickest routes to visit n locations with k vehicles, or assign shifts to employees, taking into account skills and availability.

Few people realize how much AI algorithms improve those solutions compared to manual planning. For example, when telcos started using OptaPlanner’s AI planning algorithms to plan their fleet of technicians, many expected a driving time reduction of 1-2%. It was 25%. In some cases, the drive time reduction saves hundreds of millions of dollars and millions of kilograms of CO² emissions every year.

Join us and find out how to solve planning challenges in your industry with the AI algorithms of OptaPlanner.

This presentation will include:

  • The top 3 use cases of AI planning—challenges and complexity.
  • Why AI Planning beats human planning.
  • What customers tell us they achieved—by the numbers.
  • An AI planning demo.

Live event date: Wednesday, March 24, 2021 - 11:00 AM CET

On-demand event: Available for one year afterward.
