The Company

Arke is an independent micro SME providing: options analysis, optimisation and project support. We support a wide range of programmes from ‘quick look’ research studies to high profile, multi-billion-pound programmes.  Our independence enables us to present a total programme picture whilst protecting commercial interests.

The People

Understanding and solving complex problems requires a technical background and unconstrained thinking. Building upon systems engineering principles, our people use their diverse skills, knowledge, and experience in business, engineering, science, and mathematics to explore the wider impact of change.

Our Support

Arke provides options optimisation and evidence-based decision making. This extends to cost and benefit analysis, business case and investment appraisal support, exploitation support and operational research underpinned by data analysis.
