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...

Enhance .NET API for maps

When attempting to use the reflection mechanism of OPL CPLEX API under .NET (version 12.9 but same problem seen in documentation of latest version), I stumble upon an error on my first implementation of a missing method "NbDim" for the map class "...

OPL function to assign a initial value or fix te value to a variable

The only way to do a warm start is by using OPL script.it should be possible in the variable declaration to give a start value. the same way if you want to fix a variable to a value you need to 2 lines of code to fix the upper and lower bounds... ...

Dantzig-Wolf-decomposition with CPLEX

Extend the CPLEX-API to let reformulate a problem by CPLEX, notably a problem - which could be solved efficiently by a DW-decomposition. It should be reformulated by CPLEX to a problem (its dual) which could be solved by CPLEX's benders algorithm....

Add support for Python 3.9 and 3.10 to cplex & docplex packages (they support a very limited number of Python versions)

Please add support for Python 3.9 and 3.10 to the cplex and docplex Python packages as soon as possible and upload new binary packages (wheels) to the Python Package Index. The cplex package currently supports Python 3.7 and 3.8. According to the...

CPLEX: Make adding mulitple objectives consistent with adding one objective

In the Java API for CPLEX (presumably similar in other APIs), it is possible to create an objective and add it to a model in one function call, using overloads of IloCplexModeler.addMinimize() and .addMaximize() that take an IloNumExpr argument. D...

Add support for Java 11 in CPLEX java API

Currently, CPLEX and CPO provide a java API to the engines. This API currently supports Java 8 (IBM SDK and Oracle Java). A more recent versions of Java with LTS is Java 11 - It would be nice if CPLEX Optimization studio officially supports Java 1...

Allow initialisation using OPL of arrays within tuple sets

In OPL it is not possible to initialise an array which is within a set of tuples either through values or programmatically. An enhancement should be made to OPL to allow this. Consider: {string} Factors = {"a","b","c"}; tuple T_2 { key int i; int ...

Have atoi and itoa in OPL

Today in OPL, ftoi is quite useful to convert float to int.What would help is to do conversions between int and string in order to be able to process strings as inputs or compute inputs. What we miss is atoi and itoa
