Selecting Project Portfolios by Optimizing Simulations

Download our report to learn the cutting-edge technique of using simulation optimization to select an optimal portfolio of projects, given budgetary and other constraints.

Optimal Portfolio Project Selection

Recent advances in the area of simulation optimization allow managers to go beyond traditional methodologies in selecting optimal sets of projects to fund. These advances make use of portfolio performance measures and goals that can be defined to directly relate to corporate strategy and are easy to understand and communicate. This paper presents a real-world example to illustrate this state-of-the-art methodology.

In this paper, we first describe traditional techniques for portfolio planning and project selection. We then detail simulation optimization and its use as an ideal tool for optimizing project portfolios. We conclude with a real-world example involving the energy industry and illustrate the challenges and options facing corporate managers today via several approaches/cases.

Tabu Search

Tabu Search, also called Adaptive Memory Programming, is a method for solving challenging optimization problems in the fields of business, engineering, economics and science. Everyday examples include practical applications in resource management, financial and investment planning, healthcare systems, energy and environmental policy, pattern classification, biotechnology and a host of other areas. Tabu search has emerged as one of the leading technologies for handling real-world problems that have proved difficult or impossible to solve with classical procedures.
