Services

Our Services

ODYS offers engineering services for the development and deployment of automatic control systems based on real-time optimization and model predictive control. The consulting services of ODYS include analyzing with the client the desired features to be optimized, constraints, and sources of uncertainty, along with the most adequate engineering solution for it, and the development of the software modules required for solving the decision problem. The effectiveness and robustness of our prototypes are tested with the client in realistic simulation environments. Training and after-sale support is offered at the client site for possible software reconfigurations due to changed specifications and updates.

In addition to be a supplier for private companies, ODYS is also actively participating in externally funded projects, including European and national projects四季娱乐登录. Partnerships in research and innovation projects create opportunities for ODYS to bridge the gap between academia and industry, enabling technology transfer and reducing the time to market of innovative products.
