Haarlem (The Netherlands) / Evansville (IN, USA) – In February 2004, Applied Optimization Inc. (AOI) and Paragon signed the AIMMS Service Partnership Agreement. Earlier, in October 2003, AOI had selected AIMMS as a strategic tool for solution development and consultancy services for the process industry. 

The first packaged solution to be marketed by AOI is a Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) tool for the process industry. In addition to this, a Tactical Planning application has also been developed for the beverage industry. Both solutions have been developed using AIMMS software.

The partnership between AOI and Paragon is expected to provide AOI a competitive edge in providing state-of-the-art solutions and services to their customers using the optimization technology from Paragon. The combined experience should result in an ongoing improvement of AOI’s solutions and services and the AIMMS’ software.
