FuzzySQL is a powerful extension to the Structured Query Language (the defacto standard for accessing and maintaining data within a relational database system – as well as many row and column-oriented non-relational systems such as spreadsheets and many flat files).


Port Operations

The model is built on a combination of queuing theory, high dimensional optimization techniques and many state of the art machine intelligence capabilities - such as fuzzy logic and genetic algorithms. A Port Operations Model is built on Scianta Intelligence’s knowledge-base framework and includes both a complete stochastic event simulation system and a multi-objective.


The Adaptive Intelligence Platform

Through its collection of Autonomous Component Managers (nodes in the peer-to-peer network), the Intelligence Platform creates a dynamic grid technology system supporting not only remote application execution and remote data collection, but also cooperative problem resolution through shared resources and shared solution processing.


Crew Scheduling

The crew scheduler is an integrated and coherent collection of Java J2EE classes consisting of a master plan compiler, resource managers, job managers, calendar generators, precedence solvers, bounded and unbounded schedulers, elastic and elastic constraint handlers, and a final ranked collection of solutions.
