AIMMS adds ODH-CPLEX to its Prescriptive Analytics Platform

AIMMS announce that it has formed an agreement with Optimization Direct to include its new product, ODH-CPLEX, in the AIMMS Prescriptive Analytics Platform as an available add-on.

The AIMMS Prescriptive Analytics Platform is the technology of choice for operations research and analytics professionals to build and deliver solutions that improve business performance. The Platform leverages the power of mathematical optimization and modeling to provide companies with a competitive edge and quantifiable results. AIMMS has been doing this for nearly three decades, and always tries to find innovative ways to improve value for customers.

Large-scale optimization enables decision-makers to evaluate scenarios in any part of the business. For example, supply chain organizations can use optimization for production planning and scheduling, supply chain management, sourcing, etc. As complexity and data volumes increase, the need for more powerful optimizers (so-called mathematical solvers) also increases. Optimization Direct is focusing on improving the performance of optimizers, specifically CPLEX, by offering additional mathematical “horsepower” to solve the largest and most complex planning, scheduling and supply chain optimization problems. ODH-CPLEX is a new solver designed to run on modern multiprocessor machines.

“We decided to add ODH-CPLEX in our suite because the product meets the needs in specific situations where our customers require an even higher performance from CPLEX. It is a great and easy way to generate value quickly,” says Gertjan de Lange, SVP Connecting Business & Optimization at AIMMS. “We have worked very closely with Optimization Direct to get the best performance from ODH-CPLEX. Their support is superb, and they allow us to set a new bar in the world of prescriptive analytics technology.”

Robert Ashford of Optimization Direct adds: “We are delighted to work with AIMMS. They have an excellent range of products and a deep knowledge of their application in their chosen vertical markets. The potential for optimization is enormous; the AIMMS Prescriptive Analytics platform makes it accessible to a wide range of customers.”

ODH-CPLEX is available in the latest AIMMS version, AIMMS 4.46. Download AIMMS here. To learn about Optimization Direct, visit its website.
