Greycon Suite Cuts 20% Off Time To Solve Trim Problems Using Gurobi Optimizer

LONDON, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Greycon, a world leader in scheduling and execution for the paper, printing, film and nonwovens industries, has chosen Gurobi as the optimiser for their new Greycon Suite version 8.0 and GreyconMill release 2.5SR2, which were released on 14th February.

The new release's main highlight is the reduction in the time taken to solve difficult trim problems by an average of more than 20% compared to previous versions. This performance increase is due to the adoption of the Gurobi (www.gurobi.com) mathematical optimisation library. This increase in speed applies to all trim optimisation engines across the Greycon suite of products, including X-Trim, opt-Studio and GreyconMill.

"We are very pleased that Greycon has chosen to switch to Gurobi as the optimiser for their suite of applications," said Dr. Bixby, CEO of Gurobi Optimization. "The Gurobi library has been engineered from the ground-up for multi-threaded computing, making it well-suited to multi-core computing of the type Greycon performs. Like Greycon, we are focused on delivering industry-leading results and continuing to improve our performance over time."

Commenting on these developments, Greycon CEO Constantine Goulimis said: "Despite being very busy in the last six months with complex go-lives at Biaxplen (Russia), Blue Paper (France), DuPont (USA), Kipaş (Turkey) and Raven Engineered Films (USA), this new release demonstrates Greycon's commitment to the industries it serves. As a small illustration of the continuous investment in the process, the X-Trim manual has more than doubled since its first release in 2001, from 170 pages to over 340 today. The work we did for the 8.0 release was complex and painstaking, but greatly facilitated by the excellent Gurobi support team. In this manner we gain the trust of the customers we serve: in some markets customer adoption of X-Trim is reaching saturation levels. We estimate that more than 75 percent of packaging paper production in North America is optimised by X-Trim."
