Multi-solver optimization with an intuitive user interface

The Decision Support Group of Sasol Technology was tasked to develop an application to optimize the schedule for operating the gas engines. The difference in the duration of the shutdown periods for the various service intervals made it absolutely necessary to optimize the schedule over fairly long term periods. This need, combined with a mixed integer scheduling problem, would require a powerful solver. A user friendly human interface was also necessary. AIMMS provided an ideal solution: a powerful multi-solver optimizing tool with a configurable and adaptable user interface, capable of creating powerful user friendly applications.
