ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA, 8 March 2011 – SolveIT Software Pty Ltd, a leading provider of enterprise software for supply & demand optimisation and predictive modelling, announced today that it has signed a contract with CBH Group for quality optimisation of grain loads.

The objective of the project is to provide additional value to CBH growers through a quality optimisation system that gives growers greater control over marketing their grain quality, while enhancing the consistency of grain quality outturned to marketers. Although it is relatively simple to calculate a weighted average quality for any grower who delivered to CBH at the completion of harvest, growers would benefit from live calculations during harvest that allow for offsetting individual loads not meeting a certain receive standard against a quality bank of loads within the receive standards. This will allow a grower to improve the grading of one load against another load.

The primary task of SolveIT’s optimisation platform will be to power the CBH web application for quality optimisation. SolveIT’s Optimisation Platform will receive selected grower data including load information, prices, optimisation objective, etc. and generate optimal lot plans. The grower will see the results of the optimiser displayed through the CBH web application, where they will be able to make manual adjustments, as well as accept and submit a plan.

“Our growers spend an enormous amount of time physically blending grain on farm, the Quality Optimisation system is all about giving control and flexibility to our growers so that they can virtually perform this blending function, we, along with SolveIT are providing them the tools they need to optimally perform this virtual function,” said Mr Mathew Regan, Grain Quality Manager, CBH Group. "We believe that SolveIT’s platform is most suited to providing fast and accurate results to enhance our grower members business."

SolveIT Software’s proprietary optimisation platform is based on multiple artificial intelligence algorithms that dynamically compete and cooperate across the search space to solve complex, non-linear, highly constrained optimisation problems. This optimisation platform is the core solving engine for SolveIT’s supply chain applications, such as APS (Advanced Planning and Scheduling) and SCNO (Supply Chain Network Optimiser), and will be used to power the CBH Group web application for quality optimisation.

CBH Group is a co-operative with operations extending along the value chain from grain storage, handling and transport to marketing, shipping and processing. With revenues in excess of $1 billion, CBH Group is based in Western Australia and is owned and controlled by around 6000 grain growers, conducting approximately 332,000 truck load movements per year.
