Bring MATLAB interface back for CPLEX

Please bring back the MATLAB interface for CPLEX. We rely heavily on this feature since toolboxes we use are Matlab exclusive.

OPL model generation with multithreating

the OPL model generation uses only 1 core and it takes time.with a pre analysis of the model it could be possible to parallelize some of the model generation.

OPL interface for Matlab

Would be great to have not only a Matlab interface to CPLEX, but to OPL as well. It would facilitate. model deisgn (.mod) using OPL (way easier than working directly with CPLEX. model modification, re-run, post/pre-processing computations using a ...

Nonlinear solver for CPLEX

Add nonlinear optimization capability to CPLEX. Many real-life models are nonlinear by nature. CPLEX solver requires a linear model to work. A good nonlinear solver can often times overperform a linearized form of a real-life model. Having a nonli...

IBM Z Common Data Provider template for the User Define SMF Record Type 249 cut by DVM

The customer is using IBM Z Common Data Provider (zCDP) to stream SMF records in real-time to their Splunk. zCDP provides policies for all the non user define SMF records, the SMF249 is a user define record, hence zCDP can't reference o it, so it ...

add doopl in the CPLEX distribution

relying on docplex python API got much easier since docplex was included in the CPLEX product. doopl which is a python package that allows to call OPL model from python code can be download from https://pypi.org/project/doopl/ but having doopl in ...

Add support for .NET 6 and Linux OS in CPLEX APIs

We developed a product based on .NET 6 that relies on CPLEX core functionalities and we need to make it run both on Windows an Linux operating systems. The .NET 6 libraries are platform independent but the CPLEX Optimization Studio only provides a...

read solution from cpo file

For CP-Optimizer, it would be great to have the ability to read a given solution from a file and pass it to a cpo model as a starting point and also enable to check this solution feasibility

Implement nonconvex quadratic constraints in CPLEX

CPLEX already supports nonconvex quadratic objectives, but not yet constraints, even though they bring a lot of flexibility in modelling.

Run optimization solver invocations in parallel

Extract from SAS PROC OPTMODEL COFOR new feature:Be able to run optimization solver invocations in parallel, in iterations of a concurrent FOR loop that is specified using the COFOR statement. The COFOR statement operates in the same manner as the...
