New Version of ODH-CPLEX available with AIMMS Prescriptive Analytics Platform
June 01, 2019
The AIMMS Prescriptive Analytics Platform is a technology for operations research and analytics professionals for building and delivering solutions that improve business performance. The software leverages the power of mathematical optimization and modeling to provide companies with a competitive edge and quantifiable results.
ODH is a heuristic engine designed for finding good solutions to mixed integer programming models (MIPs). These are used to model scheduling, logistics, planning and investment problems across the full range of industrial and organisational activities.
Model size and complexity is growing as short term decisions, detail and more complex global operations need to be considered, supported by a growing availability of accurate data. Many stretch the MIP optimization software technology and hardware to the limit. ODH was born from the need to get good solutions to highly complex satellite scheduling models and now has a track record in scheduling, communications, supply chain and logistics.
ODH|CPLEX is an embedding of the ODH engine inside the world’s leading MIP optimizer, IBM CPLEX. It brings the advantage of ODH – finding good solutions to difficult models – to CPLEX which computes an improving best bound and closes the optimally gap to give solutions of proven quality.
The new version of ODH-CPLEX is now available with the AIMMS Prescriptive Analytics Platform
