The first TESS™ Academy Masterclass was completed at Trade Extensions corporate headquarters in Uppsala, Sweden with the participants becoming the first individuals to achieve a TESS Academy Masterclass certification for ‘Advanced Optimisation’. 

The intensive three-day course taught some of the most advanced optimisation techniques available today while providing users with practical techniques they can apply to ‘real world’ situations faced by their organisations.   One of the most popular and effective applications of the techniques is ‘supply chain tenders’ and these were covered along with explanations of best practice that apply to any type of tender.  In addition, the Masterclass included other advanced optimisation methods that can be used for projects such as asset management and production planning. 

Trade Extensions, co-founder and Chief Scientist, Fredrik Ygge, who delivered the course, said, “The Masterclass gives users ‘hands on’ experience with many advanced strategic sourcing and optimisation techniques and their organisations will benefit hugely from applying them in practical situations.” 

The TESS Masterclass series is designed for TESS users who wish to learn some of the more advanced features of the platform and have achieved Level 3 certification through the TESS Academy.  The next Advanced Optimisation Masterclass is taking place in Chicago from 8 – 10 June 2016 and TESS users wishing to enrol can do so through the TESS Academy
