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.

If conditions in pre-processing in .mod files

To maintain two (or more) similar models in one instead of in two (or more) separate .mod files, we need the possibility of using if conditions in pre-processing in .mod files without using execution blocks.

Cplex.solveFixed() for OPL Script

Is there an equivalent of Cplex.SolveFixed() for OPL Script ? I'm looking for dual costs of a MILP. So I'd like to 1) solve it to get the solution. 2) solve the corresponding LP with fixed integer variables 3) get dual costs I don't know in advanc...

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.

Resolve race condition in CP optimizer engine

We've run into what seems to be a race condition in the cp optimizer engine with multiple workers. The issue occurs when a worker finds the initial solution right around the time limit. In this case, the engine believes that it timed out, but it a...

cpoptimizer interactive should display any var and expressions

CP Optimizer interactive should mimic CPLEX optimizer interactive for these two points 1. In Cp Optimizer command line, enable to display the value of an IloNumVar (floating point variables) and IloNumExpr2. enable write solution in a file

Time to Best

I want to put your attention on the optimization concept called "time to best" (ttb), i.e. the time needed by an optimization procedure to find the best solution regardless of the total time needed by its complete execution. Anyone working in the ...

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...

Get CPLEX-version directly from ILOG-script

We have code that has to run under 12.7.1 and older version. Unfortunately the API for warm-start has changed. We have either vectors.setStart(cplex); // 12.7.1 or vectors.setVectors(cplex); // 12.6 OPL misses a nice way to access the version numb...

"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 ...
