Episode 60

OPTiMA Centre

Companies from many different sectors are all starting to realise one thing – that mathematics can help them make better decisions.

That’s the goal of a new ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre. It’s called OPTIMA and its aim is to bring cutting-edge optimisation research to industry. The Centre’s Director is ACEMS Chief Investigator Kate Smith-Miles.

In this episode, we explore the field of optimisation, some of the types of problems it’s used for, some of the challenges in trying to get organisations to “buy in” to using it, and why Kate believes the Centre is poised to tackle some very interesting and challenge industry problems.
