Application OSILI
Daniel Belard and Didier Lesage, COSEA/VINCI Contruction

TGVVINCI gave its “Prix de l’Innovation VINCI 2015 pour la région Grand Ouest” to the ExtendSim model called OSILI. This model studies the design and operational issues of the TGV between Tours and Bordeaux, to determine whether the high-speed trains meet reliability, availability, and regularity criteria.

OSILI represents the whole of the LGV SEA line. It allows the simulation of  incidents on the line to better understand an incident's impact and calculate the ensuing delays. Simulation provides precise results, making it possible to replay incidents and better evaluate arbitration rules.

2015 Franz Edelman Prize Awarded to Syngenta for a Project Utilizing ExtendSim
2015 INFORMS Conference on Business Analytics & Operations Research
13 April 2015 • Huntington Beach, CA USA

Edelman awardsExtendSim was one of the key tools used by Syngenta and KROMITE LLC in their award-winning project "Good Growth through Advanced Analytics" earning the 2015 INFORMS Franz Edelman Award for Achievement in Operations Research and the Management Sciences.

The "Good Growth through Advanced Analytics" program is a Syngenta soybean breeding team initiative using advanced mathematics and new technologies to develop higher yielding soybean varieties. Through increased genetic gain, the program is improving soybean variety accuracy, selection intensity, genetic variation and generation time without using more land, water or inputs.
 Syngenta recognizes the positive impact these tools have on soybean R&D and is initiating a multi-year effort to customize and launch similar tools across all major crops.

Soybeans"Winning the Franz Edelman Award demonstrates the scientific excellence and leadership science is bringing to the farmer in the field," said Joe Byrum, Syngenta Global Head Soybean R&D. "It's a level of leadership that has hasn't been demonstrated in agriculture until now. We're honored to win the Franz Edelman Award... It further demonstrates the impact our Good Growth Plan is having on the world, and we're proud to share that message with the masses."

ARLOG AwardArgentine Assocation of Business Logistics (ARLOG)
5th edition of the ARLOG Award
16 July 2008 • Argentina

UADE and GL&A Win the Prize ARLOG 2008

ARLOG 2008 AwardIn 2008, the Argentine Association of Business Logistics (ARLOG) selected  the Universidad Argentina de la Empresa (UADE) for the prestigious ARLOG Award. In conjunction with GL&A Consultants, UADE developed a discrete stochastic simulator for freight trains carrying cereals, oils, and other products to the ports of Bahía Blanca and Rosario from producing areas in Argentina to improve the logistical capacity of the company. The operation of the entire system is very complex as it models a multitude of locomotives in constant motion to move several thousand wagons for the rail network, subject to mechanical, climatic, and human contingencies.

The prestigious ARLOG award is granted biennially to projects that deepen and promote the development, innovation, and professionalization of logistics management.
