Making Optimised Decisions about the Future
“Transitioning to a circular economy does not only amount to adjustments aimed at reducing the negative impacts of the linear economy. Rather, it represents a systemic shift that builds long-term resilience, generates business and economic opportunities, and provides environmental and societal benefits."
The Ellen Macarthur Foundation, 2019
As accurate representations of multi-dimensional, complex systems, the Advanced Digital Business Twins we construct for our Clients enable them to embrace Circular Economy principles.
Core to the Circular Economy are the principles of waste removal, reuse and sustainability. By adopting a value chain approach within our unique suite of solutions, we are not only able to support clients apply these principles within their own value chains, we are able to connect solutions across our suites, to explore and evaluate extended value chains which connect different sectors.
Examples of how we apply circular economy principles within Client processes and individual solutions include:
Referred to as blended solutions, our ability to reflect the product quality, as well as product quantity which flows through assets and processes, enables optimisation routines deployed within out solutions to truly reflect the best possible outcomes for our Clients.
Examples of how our solutions can be connected across sectors and solution suites to deliver circular economy principles include:
The flexible construction of our solutions, enabled through the underlying technology, allows us to quickly change the objective function of the solution. This means we can use the same solution to answer different questions for example:
As a result, the solutions we provide, put our Clients in control. We furnish them with the insight required to make decisions which balance and reflect the interests of their shareholders, the environment and the communities they serve.
