Automated Exploration of Alternatives

Taming the Infinitely Complex

Code3 Advisor provides automated exploration of strategy options.   This capability is essential in complex planning situations, where the number of possible options is extremely numerous, and/or where multiple criteria are important for choosing the best course of action.

Fast Solutions to Tough Problems

For example, Department X is evaluating placement of eight battalion chiefs among 43 fire stations.  On its face, this is a problem with approximately 145 million solutions;  however, the problem is compounded by the fact that the department wants to optimize not only command response time, but also equalize supervisory workload, incident workload and command reliability, and optimize equality of service delivery to the greatest extent possible.

State-of-the-Art Techniques

Code3 Advisor solves this problem by applying a proprietary and highly effective machine learning algorithm to test strategies rapidly and refine them into good solutions for all chosen optimization objectives (which can include all response time metrics, utilization, workload, reliability, organization and custom metrics).     Within timeframes ranging from a few minutes to a few hours, Code3 Advisor transforms uncountably vast solution spaces into a manageable set of alternatives (typically 5-8), presented with their key performance indicators, for deeper evaluation by command staff.
