CROSS DISCIPLINARY OPTIMISATION UNDER CAPABILITY CONTEXT
Advancement in Optimisation (Digitalisation Focused)

Optimisation as it term implies often brings diversified contexts under one umbrella. Despite of having opulence of existing optimisation approaches, integration of proper method with real-life applications is still a challenging and onerous task. Here, we as a team, have been working on many such techniques to foot-print in diversified domains along with the association of Capability Systems Centre.
