The Profit& Production Schedule Optimiser provides an illustration of how Anaplan Optimiser functionality can be applied in the supply chain.  This application solves one particular problem that is subject to several constraints.  In a real-world scenario, Optimiser is likely to solve multiple, interacting problems at once, and we invite you to consider what scenarios you would like to optimise.  

In this case, the problem being solved is to optimise the deployment of multiple drying machines, with differing capacities and drying times in the production process.  In addition, profit margin needs to be taken into account to deliver maximum profit from the monthly order book, by prioritising orders that deliver the highest margin.  Drying machines are the key constraint in this supply scenario.
