Bob is a mathematician with 30 years' experience in optimisation and supply chain planning.
He spent over 15 years developing, maintaining, supporting and selling the commercial MIP
optimiser SCICONIC. During this time he worked on a great variety of large and small
optimisation consultancy projects in many industries. He has worked for two decades
with the supply chain management tool AspenSCM ®AspenTech (previously MIMI), focusing on
implementations in process industries. He has used Xpress-MP ™FICO over the last
decade, developing very large optimisation models to be embedded in applications.
Bob enjoys a technical challenge, but gains most satisfaction from delivering complete systems that
meet or exceed a customer's expectations and requirements, so that the software will continue to be
used and to provide value into the long term.
