Research on process optimization

CHEMAX – maximization of energetic efficiency in chemical processes

Energy efficiency, climate protection, costs savings – optimization of chemical processes
The project CHEMAX, sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, started in January 2014 with divis intelligent solutions GmbH, SUPREN GmbH and ZEDO (Zentrum für Beratungssysteme in der Technik, Dortmund e.V.) as project partners. The main objective is to develop a software tool that improves the production processes in the chemical industry. The production processes shall be made more efficient and cost saving.

divis intelligent solutions GmbH participates in this project as a specialist for the application of global optimization on industrial problems.

MONREP – "Model-based optimization for non-linear and restricted production processes”

The research project  MONREP started in January 2014 and is supported by the Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie (BMWi) within the framework of  “Zentrales Innovationsprogramm Mittelstand“ (ZIM). Project partners are the Cologne University of Applied Sciences and the divis intelligent solutions GmbH. The main objective of the project is to find better solutions for difficult and restricted optimization problems whereby one of the main points lies in the deployment of model-based optimization methods.

By means of these so called meta- or surrogate-models it should be possible to determine more efficient solutions for difficult problems which contain many variables and restrictions so that less steps are needed to achieve the optimal region. Furthermore, the surrogate-models can help to reduce the amount of explored invalid solutions and that finally enough candidates which represent possible solutions are available.

The application of such models is useful, for example, for the virtual vehicle design and many other virtual development processes (e.g. aerospace and chemical industry).

ClearVu Analytics supported by research grant

As part of our continuous quest for maximizing customer benefits we are continuously improving and extending the capabilities of our flagship product, ClearVu Analytics. The key goal of these activities is to research, develop, and utimately provide to our clients methods and algorithms which represent and even extend the state-of-the-art in current research on data mining and optimization.

A part of the corresponding research activities for expanding the algorithmic foundations of ClearVu Analytics is being funded until mid 2012 by means of a project support (number EP110826) provided through the central innovation program for small and medium sized enterprises, ZIM.
