Dr. Leyuan Shi

Founder, President, and Chief Scientist

LS Optimal began during research into large-scale optimization nearly 20 years ago through partnerships with industry. With these partnerships, we identified the most practical approaches to common pains and problems faced in U.S Manufacturing today.

The seminal development by Dr. Leyuan Shi was the ground-breaking approach called Nested Partitions Framework which makes any effective solving technique more efficient. Using a nested approach we can achieve localized solutions while maintaining a global solution. This methodology has been used in large-scale manufacturing scheduling, organizing maritime ports, optimal beam-angle selection to minimize radiation damage during cancer therapy and other applications.
