Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Decision Optimization CPLEX & For Watson Studio

support for date in OPL

Manipulating Date in OPL is tedious. One needs to load them as string, then use script to convert them in date and access fields of this script object (month / year ...). Furthermore, it is not even possible to create a Date from a string in scrip...

In CPLEX studio; display DOcplexCloud solve as local solve

In the IDE (CPLEX studio), with a solve on DOcplexCloud is not display the same way as a local solve.That create lots of extra work to explore the input data, the constraint expressed and the result.

Information callback procedure for Benders algorithm

For MIP problems using branch-and-bound the CPLEX API offers the info or MIP callback procedure which can be used to retrieve information during a MIP search. For the Benders algorithm these callback procedures do not work (CPLEX 12.7 throws an er...

Have a regenerate option in OPL flow control

Have a way to call regenerate a model when you change some data in scripting without the need to build from zero the model out of the model and the data.

Implement OPL as a DSL in F#

I think that it can be valuable to offer OPL as a DSL in .NET. This can be an easy (cheap) way to combine the best of OPL and of the Cplex .NET API in one language. This way OPL remain for the definition of the problem but the control flow will be...

"If and only if" for indicator-constraints in MATLAB API

We use the CPLEX for MATLAB API to solve a MILP. In our case the bottleneck of the API is the limited functionality of indicator constraints. Whereas in OPL and the Java API an "if and only if" statement is possible, this functionality is missing ...

Ability to solve Python/docplex model in CPLEX Enterprise Server

This request is actually for CPLEX Enterprise Server, not CPLEX Optimization Studio, but CES was not an option in the list of products. Currently CES is only able to solve models implemented in OPL. We would like to be able to submit and solve app...

OPL Lazy Constraint Pool

At http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21681643, it is indicated that it is not possible to add lazy constraints in OPL Script. I know OPL is not a programming language, but it is quite important to be able to add lazy constraints in ...

WML multiprocessing support

Multiprocessing using Pythons multiprocesing library works with Notebooks in Watson Studio, but not for deployed WML models. Multiprocessing for DOCPLEX MILP models can significantly reduce time and resources used for solving a set of several mode...

Add TDNoOverlap constraint type to CP Optimizer

The TDNoOverlap constraint type is presented in chapter 7 of the Ph.D. thesis "A Constraint Programming Approach for the Time Dependent Traveling Salesman Problem", by Penelope Aguiar-Melgarejo https://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/hal-01514369/documen...
