The 16th Edition of COSYTEC Users’ Club took place at the Hôtel Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile (Paris - Porte Maillot) from 20th to 21st November 2014.
As for the previous editions, this traditional event has given the opportunity to all participants to discover the latest developments, functionalities, applications and implementations performed with CHIP and OPTI-CHANNEL.
This 16th edition of the Users' Club has allowed more than fifty participants to attend over a dozen testimonials and presentations given by COSYTEC’s customers and partners within the prestigious environment of the Hotel Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile, located in the heart of Paris.
The customers testimonials have focused on Resource Planning and Scheduling in the areas of Transport (airport: ITOCHU Techno Solutions, maritime: Société Nationale Corse Méditerranée, car-sharing: BlueSolutions/Polyconseil), and Broadcast (ARTE, Ericsson Broadcast Services France, France Medias Monde, RTL, ...). These different practical use cases, coming from different sectors, have provided more exchanges and led to many fruitful discussions among participants.
Participants also attended very interesting presentations which were both more general and more prospective, from different partners (Altran Research, Implexe, SIR Dr. John UG and Thales Avionics) around the constraint technology CHIP and its applications, together with a presentation "Time: parameter, constraint or strength" from the science writer Claire Rémy. These two days were completed with the presentations of new features of CHIP and OPTI-CHANNEL, as well as demonstrations, reflecting a constant will to improve these two products.
The great success of this event was a fresh illustration of world-wide and productive synergy around CHIP technology of Constraint Programming and Optimization, and OPTI-CHANNEL software package of Resource Planning and Scheduling.
Looking forward to the 17th Edition...
