OptWorks Excel 1.1a
OptWorks: Excel 1.1a
OptWorks is a suite of eight powerful optimizers for use in Microsoft Excel. The included optimizers are a genetic algorithm, an automated genetic algorithm for novice users, simulated annealing, automated simulated annealing, coordinate pattern search, random walk, grid search, and random search. OptWorks can solve traditional problems and those that normal optimizers cannot handle, such as problems with several near-optimal solutions (multi-modal spaces) and variables with a fixed set of discrete values.
Examples of such problems can be found in logistics, scheduling, financial analysis, and complex engineering design. A step-by-step interface, context sensitive help, and examples are included to help users learn the software. Automatically generated reports allow easy results interpretation.
New version updated to support international versions of Excel.
Note: The full version allows any number of variables, objectives, and constraints providing fast solutions for problems both large and small.
