Besides licensing our SCOPE and COMPASS material optimization software products, Wolf Consulting offers a
variety of related consulting services.
Contract Optimization Studies
Using data that you provide, we will use the SCOPE and COMPASS material optimization software products to perform
optimization studies for you on a contract basis.
We will provide you with the results of the optimization studies via fax, email or regular mail. The study
results include all reports generated by the software, and assistance from our staff to help you interpret
the results. Contact us today for more information.
We offer onsite training and optimization education services. Our SCOPE and COMPASS material optimization
software products are “easy to learn and easy use”. However, we believe that users benefit greatly by
One of our experienced training engineers will travel to your site for the training session. Training is
usually scheduled for one or two days – depending on the amount of training desired, and the number of
optimization software products being licensed.
During the training session, all of the features of the software – both basic and advanced – will be reviewed.
Standard options available in the software will be configured to meet the user’s processes and operations.
Users will have an opportunity to use the software “hands on” – actually performing optimization case studies
using their own data.

Optimization Technology Introduction
Wolf Consulting will help you learn about the different types of optimization technologies that are available.
WCI’s team of skilled and experienced engineers and/or consultants will listen to your material utilization
problems, goals, and objectives, and help you develop a plan of action. In most cases, this type of a project
in completed over two (2) days.
For companies researching longer-term optimization opportunities, the consulting project typically includes
performing a sample optimization case study (using one of the SCOPE or COMPASS
software products) for one of your “material specifications”. In general, a material specification is
defined as a group of parts, all of the same thickness and material type, which can be optimized together.
In some cases, for clients that have a very large number of dissimilar material specifications, two optimization
case studies may be performed.
For companies researching daily or weekly optimization opportunities, the consulting project typically includes
performing several optimization case studies (using one of the SCOPE or COMPASS software products) for one day’s
worth of production requirements.
You will have a chance to experience the optimization software in action – as well as keep a copy of all of the
reports that are generated.
Based on the review of the goals and objectives, combined with the experience and results of the sample
optimization case study, you and WCI can make an informed business decision regarding whether or not it makes
sense to invest in an optimization software solution.
