  • Patent number: 8626564
    Abstract: A system for simulating drink production. The system can include a processor configured to aggregate existing material information, receive predicted material information, aggregate production information, receive timing information of at least one drink product, model consumer liking of the at least one drink product, and determine a production plan based on the existing material information, the predicted material information, the production information, the timing information and the consumer liking. The existing material information can be associated with a beverage input of at least one drink product. The predicted material information can be associated with the beverage input of the at least one drink product. The production information is associated with production resources of the at least one drink product.

  • Publication number: 20120116841
    Abstract: A system for modeling supply and demand. The system can include a processor configured to aggregate material information, determine a product lineup based on the aggregate material information, and determine a consumer demand based on a consumer liking of the product lineup. The material information can include quantity information, availability information, and quality information. The material information can be variable.

  • Publication number: 20120116565
    Abstract: A system for managing an agricultural commodity based production system. The system can include a processor configured to aggregate material information, aggregate production information, receive production limits, receive product limits, and at least one of maximize or minimize a parameter of a product lineup including the at least one product based on the aggregate material information, the production information, the production limits; and the product limits. The material information can include quantity information, availability information, and quality information. The material information can be variable. The production information is associated with production resources of the at least one product. The production limits can establish operating tolerances of the production resources. The product limits can establish valid product configurations of at least one product.
