Main new features
This new version makes it easier to solve job-shop problems (JSP). Artelys Kalis improves the modeling and resolution of optimization problems in IT and operations research where jobs have to be scheduled and assigned to resources .
On the modelling side, the user is now able to define a set-up time between two tasks requiring the same resource. For example, it is now easy to model a scheduling problem where the maintenance tasks are to be performed in different places meaning the skilled technicians required for these tasks must travel between these places.
On the resolution side, the Timetable algorithm, used for the propagation of the resource constraints for the tasks, has been vastly improved, notably for the alternative resources. As a result, the performance of Artelys Kalis has vastly improved. For example, in the case of a scheduling problem with up to 250 alternative resources as a function of the number of tasks planned, the computation time reduces as shown below:
Other new features of Artelys Kalis 12.8:
Support of Python 3 Cross-platform random numbers generation

— Join Artelys and FICO on 18 May 2021 to learn more about ways to unleash the full potential of mathematical optimization.
— In association with IED Group and IDDRI, Artelys has started the development of an energy modeling solution for the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) of the Kingdom of Cambodia. Financed by the Agence Française de Développement (AFD), this project will enable MEF to benefit from a state-of-the-art tool to analyze different potential pathways describing the evolution of the energy sector of Cambodia, so as to support their strategic decision-making processes.
— ENTSO-E organizes on 16 March 2021 a public workshop aiming at presenting the Replacement Reserve processes and at providing a detailed overview of the market-clearing optimization algorithm implemented by Artelys for the TERRE platform.
