ACT Operations Research

ACT Operations Research (ACT OR) is a math-engineering company specialized and passionate in providing corporate decision-making software and process control solutions. At ACT OR we have a passion for Advanced Analytics, Operations Research, Statistical models, the theory of Systems and Control. With this passion we support our Customers to design, optimize and control their complex processes and systems, obtaining costs saving and best in class performances.



ACT OR IT is specialized in advanced decision support systems by standing on optimization, simulation, forecasting and process control expertise built on the breadth of skills within its cross-engineering background team; their products are based on a strong scientific foundation. Company core-competencies includes: math optimization and statistical forecasting; discrete event dynamic simulation; software design and implementation. The distinctive features of ACTOR products are linked to the strong mathematical content at the base of decision support software products. The integration of forecasting, simulation and optimization for optimized process management is a feature that distinguishes the ACTOR approach, which therefore does not qualify for being a
software house but an engineering company, in particular a math engineering company that with own products can optimize the performance of various processes.
Based on the power of artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, simulations, and mathematical optimization techniques ACT Operations Research offers robust and innovative solutions to cut costs, improve productivity and service levels, predict trends and behaviors, improve safety, support the care of patients, reduce risks and manage crises.
ACTOR innovates the way in which operational research, statistics and control theory are used in companies and plants.
The company carries out R&D activities on a continuous basis and all personnel involved in the design and development of company products are actually involved in R&D activities.
The Production Planning and Scheduling engine has been developed and applied in funded projects and client projects. Among the funded projects, we mention 1-SWARM, a European H2020 project, in which the production planning and scheduling engine was applied to a particular case in which tasks and activities involving human-machine interaction are assigned. In the Humans-Hub project, funded by the Lombardy Region, the scheduling engine was used to provide the necessary input for the development of accessory modules that support the management of activities and personnel.  
All company personnel have a minimum degree qualification (engineering, IT, automatics, economics) and most of them have a PhD degree (operational research, engineering, IT). R & D is also carried out in participation with public research facilities (universities, CNR) and the topics are in the field of operations research and management science, with the design and development of decision support models for effective and efficient management of processes in manufacturing, logistics, revenue management and control of large industrial plants.
