Creating Optimization-based solutions easily: Xpress Insight

Abstract: General purpose solvers for optimization problems have been around for nearly three decades. Tools and languages for helping OR scientists build such models exist since long ago too. This presentation will describe a third type of optimization software: Xpress Insight, a platform for deploying user-ready applications based on Optimization. FICO Xpress Insight (formerly FICO Optimization Modeler) enables organizations to rapidly deploy optimization models as powerful applications. It lets teams work in a collaborative environment with interactive visualization and an interface designed for end users to work with models in easy-to-understand terms and account for trade-offs and sensitivities implicit in the real problem.
