Dassault Systèmes

Solving the world’s planning puzzles using a single platform
Every business has its planning puzzles, some large, some complex, some seemingly impossible to solve. Our vision is to solve every one using a single platform. That vision has driven the development of Quintiq software since the first line was coded back in 1997. We are now an industry leader in supply chain planning and optimization and became part of Dassault Systèmes.

Dassault Systèmes is the 3DEXPERIENCE company that provides world-leading solutions to transform the way products are designed, produced and supported. Serving over 250,000 customers in 12 industries across 140 countries, from high-tech to life sciences, fashion to transportation, we help businesses and people around the world to create sustainable innovations.

What we do
Our software plans parcel deliveries for DHL in more than 100 countries; schedules trains throughout Europe; plans the production of 25% of all aluminum produced in the world and rosters air traffic controllers across five time zones and 150 locations.

What we offer

At Dassault Systèmes, we empower people and energize passion to change the world and create the future. Our environment stimulates creativity, fun and healthy competition where teams both push and help each other to excel.

Your educational background in Econometrics or Operations Research will enable you to solve the types of planning challenges that we work on. We invite you to attempt a simplified challenge to get an idea of the planning puzzles that our consultants tackle
on a daily basis. The goal of the case is to devise the optimal solution to the challenge. The case consists of 5 rounds. You will start scheduling using a very basic planning system, similar to using only pencil and paper. In each round the system will give you
more functionalities to optimize the solution. During the case we will play and discuss the puzzle so that you will get a feeling of what kind of puzzles we are working on. Who will find the optimal solution?
