Mathematical optimization algorithms for daily use

LBW Optimization GmbH applies complex mathematical algorithms to industrial applications. For this, our team works on algorithmic ideas and develops them until they are ready for everyday industrial use. The core of LBW is made up of scientists from the optimization department of Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Martin Grötschel of the Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB). Andreas Löbel and Ralf Borndörfer, who is now a professor himself, began to use research results commercially in 1999. Since then, the LBW team has grown to jointly develop optimization products for the transport and logistics sector.
