Applications of optimization with Xpress-MP
Optimization using Mathematical Programming makes it possible to solve many economic, commercial and industrial problems. The development of powerful and easy to use software means that this tool is now available to a large audience.
This book concentrates on the modeling process, which is then applied to solve 60 real problems grouped by subject into ten chapters. Besides classical industrial problems, such as transport and scheduling, there are less well known and more recent application areas such as telecommunications, personnel management and public services.
Ten chapters, each focusing on a single application domain, contain a selection of real problems. Starting with a description of each problem, the book shows how to construct and solve a mathematical programming model using Dash Optimization's powerful Xpress-MP software . Additional material at the end of each chapter and a bibliography allow the interested reader to learn more.
