Optimization and Automated Planning

Optimizing actions and plans is a key feature of decision-support tools, especially when decision makers have multiple goals. At Charles River, we help our customers face the challenge of creating multi-step plans that adapt to the real world. We use a variety of algorithms, including genetic/evolutionary algorithms, market-based negotiation algorithms, neural networks, and ant-colony optimization, to develop tools for optimization and automated planning. By integrating these algorithms with our expertise in designing human-computer interfaces, we create solutions that not only generate effective and efficient plans but also help decision makers understand their options and the potential tradeoffs.
