Case Study: Optimising Chemical Plant Scheduling


A large EU-based chemical company.


The client faced significant challenges in scheduling machinery in their chemical plants. They needed to optimise operational costs while meeting demand and considering maintenance requirements. The uncertainty in demand and maintenance schedules made the task even more complex.

How We Helped

We engineered a custom solution to address these challenges. Our system optimised the scheduling of chemical plant machinery, focusing on minimising operational costs while ensuring demand was met. It also incorporated maintenance schedules and accounted for uncertainties in both demand and maintenance, ensuring the solution was robust and adaptable to real-world conditions.


Our solution enabled the client to significantly reduce operational costs by 18% while consistently meeting demand. The optimised scheduling also ensured that maintenance requirements were seamlessly integrated, leading to more efficient and reliable plant operations. Our solution’s ability to handle uncertainty provided the client with a flexible and resilient scheduling tool.
