Prof. Gautam Mitra and Dr. Cormac Lucas bring their experience and enthusiasm to drive this company. The company also draws upon the research experience of CARISMA: The Centre for the Analysis of Risk and Optimisation Modelling Applications Brunel University and benefits from the R & D support an research results of their many researchers.

Prof. Gautam Mitra FBCS, FIMA, FRSADirector & Chairman of Optirisk Systems, Director of CARISMAProf. Mitra has over 40 years of experience in Mathematical Programming Modelling, Computational Optimisation, Operational Research, Computational Optimisation, Stochastic programming and Risk Decisions in Finance.

Dr. Cormac LucasDirector of Optirisk SystemsDr. Lucas has extensive knowledge in Mathematical programming modelling, Pre-analysis techniques in linear programs and representation of logical expressions as MIPs. Dr. Lucas earned a bachelor of science degree from the Brunel University, (1981)and a PhD(1986) from Brunel University. In addition to this, he has held academic positions at CARISMA, Brunel University..

Mr Frank Ellison

Mr Frank Ellison is the principal optimisation consultant ; he has extensive knowledge of optimisation models, solver systems, and decision support systems.

{ CARISMA is the academic research partner of OptiRisk systems }

The company has a highly skilled pool of manpower resources. There are 3 Phd and 4 post graduate researchers variously working for OptiRisk systems

Products ampl com object
Products : AMPL – COM Object

  • Object Oriented Component Library, based on Microsoft COM software technologies

  • Rationale:

    • Software building blocks utilise the features of a programming language and AMPL individually as well as in combination

  • Benefits:

    • The components are used to build powerful DSS applications

    • They hide models from end users – when desiderable

    • They make readily available the full AMPL features from any major programming language
