Blog Post created by Advocate on Mar 2, 2018

Xpress Executor is the technology component that provides standalone support for optimization execution services. This executes Xpress-Mosel models using the Xpress optimization engines. In addition to Xpress Mosel models, Xpress Executor can solve problems in the industry-standard MPS/LP formats. It provides SOAP and REST interfaces to be either used within FICO Decision Management Platform or from external applications. Data connector extensions of Mosel make orchestration with FICO Application Studio an easy task.


The Xpress Executor v2.2.1 release brings the following enhancements:

  • This release includes several new scalability enhancements to Xpress Executor that enable simulations and real-time field calculations to run more efficiently.
  • Enhancements have also been made to ensure optimization jobs complete and overcome any unexpected issues e.g. jobs are re-queued when they disconnect unexpectedly, solver safe mode is enabled for jobs when Xpress Mosel terminates unexpectedly. There is also now the ability to override parameters in the app and easily access logging information
  • The FICO Xpress Optimization documentation is now available online. This helps Xpress customers find what they need more quickly and easily
