Welcome to Eudoxus Systems' website.
Eudoxus Systems helps businesses to make better decisions and run their operations more efficiently. We do this by analysing business problems and building mathematical models of them. We then embed these mathematical models within computer systems to provide day-to-day assistance to those businesses.
Our main technical strength lies in models involving mathematical optimization. These are techniques which we have been using for the past 20 years to tackle planning and scheduling problems around the world. We also believe in promoting their wider use, hence this web site with its examples of applications and its lecture notes to help you learn how to apply the techniques yourself.
Another strength lies in providing support to legacy systems implemented using Aspentech's SCM package (formerly Chesapeake Decision Science's Mimi). The main programming language used in these systems is SCM's Expert System. Eudoxus Systems has developed a pretty printer for this, SYN for Aspen SCM Expert System. This aims to
The main business areas in which we work are the oil industry and paper and packaging. These are two of the industries where planning and scheduling problems are most complex and where mathematical models have been proven to yield substantial commercial benefits.
We named our company Eudoxus after the Greek mathematician Eudoxus of Cnidus.
