The Challenge by Universidad Javeriana

Prescriptive Analytics with real impact

 

What is the Challenge Javeriana?

A one month long competition between our industrial engineering students. Each student has to design and develop a software based on Operations Research and Artificial Intelligence algorithms to automatically optimize business decision problems. 
The challenge is always based on real data provided by a real company.

The Challenge in a nutshell

Fast

After the case is ready to launch, our students have a deadline of one month to deliver their software

Free

We don't charge any money. We're only interested in giving our students the best real-life optimization experience possible

Real

We design the Challenge based on your business and your data. We neither oversimplify nor over-complicate the problem  

Measurable

We define together indicators to compare our results to your own. So far, we consistently improved the company's reference solution by 20% to 90%
