Optimization means finding the optimal value or number or in other words, the best possible option. With work optimization, the utilization of the resources in use can be planned to be as effective and cost-efficient as possible. 

Defining work optimization

At Husky Intelligence, work optimization is based on an intelligent and automatic analysis of different solution options, with the help of artificial intelligence.  The basic principle of the process works in such way that first, the target of the optimization is defined, whether that is the accountability, costs, delivery time or a combination of these for example.


After this, information about available resources and their costs, as well as different variables, like competence profiles, are chosen as the base for the optimization. The system processes the information, which might take anywhere from milliseconds to a few minutes, depending on the what effects the optimization criteria and their limits. Then the results from the system are validated and finally the approved plan can be implemented.

Work optimization can both directly and indirectly benefit the company in many ways. The most common reason for optimization is the financial gain. It is still important to remember, that savings consist of many different factors and the biggest benefit is achieved by a combination of these.

For example the objective of route optimization is to shorten the overall driven distance. This then results in savings in fuel costs and work time. Even though these savings are desirable as such, they also bring “extra benefits”; freed work time for other tasks and an increased usage percentage for the machines.

Optimization drives development

It is important to remember that the benefits of work optimization are not limited to financial savings. Optimization also helps with development concerning quality. Enhancing performance can positively affect things like work ethic, environmental strain, workplace safety, and customer satisfaction. Quality benefits are also helping with cost savings, as in the long run for example the well-being of employees and customer satisfaction increase the profitability of the business.

Here is a short list of benefits achieved by work optimization:


  • Increases usage percentage of resources and machines
  • Makes planning easier and decreases management costs
  • Decreases environmental strain
  • Helps grow and better service capabilities
  • Decreases the amount of human errors
  • Increases employees’ well-being
  • Makes the information serving as a base for cost effect analysis more precise

In practice, solutions and action plans created with optimization software are reliable. Proof of this is the fact that 20% cost savings have been measured in different fields in the delivery of optimized services. Therefore it is rather clear that adopting work optimization is a smart move – also for your company!
