Optimizing your AI investment with decision services

Identify and link operational areas that benefit from decision models such as vehicle routing, worker scheduling, and order fulfillment – empowering your teams to deliver more decision AI projects faster.

What is a decision model test bench? Why have one? And how to use Nextmv as one.

Model testing saves time and improves outcomes. But it’s not always possible to perform tests in the same environment as your production runs. That’s where a test bench comes in.

CI/CD for decision science: What is it, how does it work, and why does it matter?

CI/CD is how you ship higher quality code to production faster. But with decision science models, there’s a twist. We’ll look at the role of decision quality, specific testing tooling, and problem drift on CI/CD for decision science models.

Shift scheduling optimization: Generating shift types, planning for demand, and assigning workers

Solving a workforce scheduling problem? Not sure where to start? We walk through the basics and cover what you need to know about optimizing and automating shift scheduling.

Should I use map or traffic data for my vehicle routing problem (VRP)?

When planning routes for vehicles, it’s reasonable to think you want to incorporate map or traffic data. But it’s not always needed and is often an investment if you decide to pursue it. We look at how to decide.

What is switchback testing for decision models?

Switchback testing is a key part of the DecisionOps workflow. Get a quick primer on what it is and when to use it in this 2-minute video.

Dive into sample routing and scheduling apps in the Nextmv console that are preloaded with runs and experiments. Interact with live dashboards and explore the full functionality of these decision apps.

Decision diagrams in operations research, optimization, vehicle routing, and beyond

In the beginning there was linear programming. It spawned decades of similarly-shaped solver offshoots. Decision diagrams break with this classic paradigm and offer new opportunities to solve common optimization problems.

Bridging the divide between optimization and production infrastructure

With Nextmv, getting a decision model into production is just like deploying any other software. Build custom models and create a unique endpoint for your model that can easily integrate into your other services.

Tools for benchmarking and testing in the optimization space

Which solver or algorithm performs better for your use case? How does your model perform under stress? See a preview of how the Nextmv platform can streamline benchmarking instances, testing scenarios, and more.

Decision model, meet production

Nextmv is removing the roadblocks for going from optimization problem definition to production environment. This makes optimization easier for operations researchers and more accessible to developers. See what this looks like and watch a demo.

Going from manual to automated decision-making

What does it mean to go from manual to automated decision-making? Why make the switch? We explore this topic and show you how.

Decisions as code: Systems thinking, operations research, and computer science

From vehicle routing problems (VRPs) to scheduling staff and workers, there is a multitude of decisions ripe for automation. In this talk, Carolyn Mooney, CEO of Nextmv, talks about her vision for shifting from traditional decision workflows to decision automation where any developer can work with decisions as code.
