IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


This portal is to open public enhancement requests against products and services offered by the IBM Data & AI organization. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).

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...

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...

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...

CPO Cumul function enhancement

Our COLA project Optimisation model concerns cyclic scheduling (an object is to be built every constant X amount of time) using cumul functions. Today we need to create intervals for every object to be build in order to calculate cumul functions f...

Remove constand offset variable if it equals zero

Exporting an LP-file creates a fixed variable representing a constant offset. For many users, this is often zero, so it shuld be optional or not appearing if the offset is zero. cf. https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/forums/html/topic?id...

Dump Data into file with Setting

Being able to export the external data of a model to a .dat file with one click.I suggest an option in the .ops under language/Run.The best would be to right click on the .dat file (with the connection to file, DB or Excel) and have an export opti...

Implementation of iif indicator constraint in C API

We would like to be able to implement if-and-only-if indicator constraints in the C API.

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...

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 ...
