Decision Optimization CPLEX & For Watson Studio

Add Java perspective in the CPLEX Studio (IDE)

As in DOC, CPLEX studio should have a perspective with Java.In the install the IDE should be ready to use CPLEX, CPO, OPL and install the Java SDK....It would make so much sense to have everything ready in one IDE OPL Java (with cplex.jar, cp.jar....

Have a line number in OPL out of bounds errors

int E[i in 1..2]=2; int n=3; dvar int x[1..2] in 0..10; subject to { E[2] >=x[3]; x[1]<=2; } execute { writeln("ok") ; } gives an error but without line number. This is easy but in bigger models, it takes a lot of time to spot line numbers.

C-like printf function for OPL Script

Need a nice fct for displaying floats ? like printf('%.2f') . identation. number of decimals. for string as well. for arrays as well

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.

Function to Add tuple to a set in OPL not only in OPLscript

Have an OPL fucntion to add tuple to a set.It will avoid to use OPL script to populate them whish is slow and increase complexity of modeling.A work around that I use it to create identical Set of tuple in OPL and use OPLscript to just copy them i...

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 ...
