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: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
