A Non Mathematician's Guide to Optimisation

Artificial Intelligence, Neural Networks, Genetic Algorithms and Mathematical Optimisation, while these terms sound like they belong in a science fiction movie, in reality they are some of the different optimisation methodologies (‘the engines’) used to provide different ‘optimised’ solutions.

So for those of us without a background in mathematics, computer science or operational research what does this mean?

Growing an aquaculture business requires significant investment in infrastructure and equipment and often requires a long lead in time before it is fully operational.

Whether on the water or on land, investments need to produce a return as soon as possible. So it makes sense to try to time the availability of this additional capacity to the company as close as possible to when it can be fully utilised.
