Session Topic: Efficient modeling with OPL - Optimization Programming Language Tips and Tricks

The OPL modeling language provides a compact and straightforward code that is much easier to maintain than general-purpose programming languages (C++, Java, etc.). However a common concern as with any descriptive modeling languages is that the savings in development time may come at the cost of excessive computing overhead (memory consumption, increased run-time). Proper design is key to produce an efficient model that will scale to solve large model instances. This presentation mainly describes best practices and techniques to compress models and data so that the run-time performance and memory consumption of OPL applications are efficient.

IBM Decision Optimization Virtual User Group Meetings provide you with updated and useful information about our products and how you can get the best value for your organization from our optimization technology and solutions.

These meetings are being held electronically with presentations by our product management and development subject matter experts. The sessions will run for approximately one hour, with about 45 minutes of presentation material and 15 minutes for open questions and answers. Our goal is to provide a forum for you to:

-make smarter decisions
-get your questions answered
-elicit your feedback on various topics.

We look forward to your participation. Please contact Kitte Knight at for an invitation to this Webinar.
