Feb. 21, 2017 – Greycon has released Greycon Suite 9.0, the third iteration of X-Trim front-technology in 30 years.

In addition to the front-end migration, X-Trim now promises to be 15-per-cent faster on difficult-to-solve problems, thanks to advances in the underlying Gurobi mathematical programming libraries, says the company. Further improvements to the pattern reduction algorithms show an increase of the reductions from 23.6 per cent (version 8.9 as compared to 8.3) to 24.0 per cent (version 9.0), it adds. The opt-Studio product also contains “significant” changes in 9.0, including an aspect requested by clients: comparing the schedule against a baseline scenario, typically set a week earlier. This will show, at a glance, any changes to customer service.
