GoSmarter Optimisation

Minimise waste, maximise value

Optimise Production Planning

We know that running a manufacturing company is tough, so we’ve created GoSmarter to make it easier. GoSmarter is an AI-powered toolbox designed to help manufacturers optimise production, reduce waste and lower carbon emissions.

Optimisation Algorithms + AI

Production planning takes time, it’s costly and it’s full of risk. We have developed a set of optimisation algorithms that help Production Managers make smarter choices. Using a probabilistic approach combined with AI models to extract carbon emissions data you can optimise production to run more efficiently.

Optimising Steel Production

Rebar produces more carbon dioxide per unit weight than any other construction material. Using GoSmarter we are working with Midland Steel to optimise their Cut & Bent production and drive a reduction in offcuts (waste) and associated carbon emissions.

Benefits for your business

Optimising your production can significantly enhance your business Using GoSmarter can drive value across several key areas:

  • Improved resource management
  • More efficient use of materials
  • Reduced carbon emissions
  • Data-driven decision making
  • Compliance with regulations
  • Lower operational costs


"Working in partnership with Nightingale HQ's innovative team, we now have a digital roadmap with short, medium, and long-term actions to meet our company's Digitalisation Strategy. They completed a thorough review of our company, processes, and day to day challenges identifying digitalisation opportunities to improve productivity."

Tony Woods – CEO Midland Steel

"Nightingale HQ helped us quickly build on the success of an open knowledge and data sharing platform with serohub.net to support researchers globally.​ They took our requirements to build a centralised hub of resources and delivered on key functions like the ability to add research studies, publications and even share case-based data.​ The result has enabled our partners to contribute easily and at speed their knowledge and tools, helping to improve evidence-based decision-making on COVID-19. "

Stephan Glöckner - Helmoltz, Project Lead, LEOSS.sero-survey

"Nightingale HQ worked closely with TMD to upskill the team and improve back- office processes. They excelled at unblocking technical challenges, bringing a ‘fresh pair of eyes’ along with industry best practice. Sometimes it’s the incremental improvements and quick wins that can be hugely valuable and Nightingale HQ understand this very well. They produce exceptional work and fast."
