Intern – Optimization in Production Scheduling

4/5-month duration from February 2024


In this project, the intern will explore optimization in the context of production scheduling. The existing solver, written in Java, uses the constraint programming (CP) library from OR-Tools. The intern's mission is to re-implement a portion of the solver using the latest CP-SAT library from OR-Tools and assess its performance compared to the older CP library. While the entire solver is complex, this project will serve as an assessment of the benefits of transitioning to the new library, providing insights into improved performance and efficiency.

Skills and Requirements:

  • Proficiency in Java.
  • Knowledge of constraint programming and optimization techniques.
  • Familiarity with OR-Tools and its libraries (CP and CP-SAT).
  • Experience with performance benchmarking and profiling.
  • Analytical and problem-solving skills for assessing and comparing performance.
  • Good English language ability.
