GeoConcept maps out the future with GeoScheduling Suite™ V2

03.06.2005


GeoConcept of France, a leader in mapping and optimisation applications for businesses, has launched GeoScheduling Suite(tm) V2. This new version of the specialist software combines real-time and deferred optimisation of mobile resource timetables and provides productivity gains of 20% to 70% depending on the organisation. These optimised schedules guarantee perfect efficiency with better targeted operations, which are more pertinent, faster and less costly.

Travelling personnel spend an average of half their time in their vehicles, driving several thousand kilometres per year. This road time is both totally unproductive for the company and costly in terms of travel expenses. Optimising these movements has a direct impact on timetables, improves productivity and reduces fuel costs. These factors are very important, particularly when there is a large fleet to manage with several dozen or even several thousand technicians.

The GeoScheduling Suite™ combines detailed knowledge of the area covered using increasingly detailed geographic data with a capacity for optimisation based on equipment performance and powerful algorithms. It minimises the overall distance covered by personnel as well as the time spent in their vehicles, producing ’geoptimised’ schedules.



The new version of the GeoScheduling Suite™ moves a step ahead in the concept of geoptimising timetables for company mobile resources. The GeoScheduling Suite™ V2 provides both the best solution for real-time processing of an ’urgent’ requirement and a general planning solution, taking into account all the objectives and constraints of the company’s activity, based on customer requirements and company organisation.

The software also optimises technical performances and can be used to process schedules for a large number of mobile resources, which are updated regularly by a large team. The benchmarks used by many customers highlight this solution’s ability to meet the demands of several hundred interventions per day.

GeoScheduling Suite™ V2 can also be integrated into the company’s information system, using standardised processes and standard exchanges in XML format for greater fluidity of information transfers. Customer files, available resources and requests for intervention can all be collected automatically by the company’s various information systems (ERP, CRM or Supply chain) and then optimised using GeoScheduling Suite™.

Furthermore, the number of environments supported is expanding. GeoScheduling Suite™ V2 has been validated on a range of application servers - WebLogic, Borland Enterprise Server and Tomcat - and on the Linux, Windows and Solaris environments.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
