Distributore Esclusivo

Databases are the tool of choice for managing large amounts of information. LINGO uses ODBC technology to allow you to access set information and data in virtually any popular Windows database application. Using a single statement in your model you can transfer data between LINGO and database applications such as:LINGO can be run as a server application from a database program. For example, using Microsoft Access as your development environment and LINGO as your solver, you could build a complete, turn-key database application for a client or colleague. The user could be provided with input screens, output screens and customized reports as well as a “Solve” button right in their application, which directly calls LINGO and runs a series of specified commands.



LINGO is a comprehensive tool designed to make building and solving Linear, Nonlinear (convex & nonconvex/Global), Quadratic, Quadratically Constrained, Second Order Cone, Stochastic, and Integer optimization models faster, easier and more efficient. LINGO provides a completely integrated package that includes a powerful language for expressing optimization models, a full featured environment for building and editing problems, and a set of fast built-in solvers. The recently released LINGO 16 includes a number of significant enhancements and new features.

Easy Model Expression

LINGO will help you cut your development time. It lets you formulate your linear, nonlinear and integer problems quickly in a highly readable form. LINGO’s modeling language allows you to express models in a straightforward intuitive manner using summations and subscripted variables — much like you would with pencil and paper. Models are easier to build, easier to understand, and, therefore, easier to maintain. LINGO can exploit multiple CPU cores for faster model generation.

Convenient Data Options

LINGO takes the time and hassle out of managing your data. It allows you to build models that pull information directly from databases and spreadsheets. Similarly, LINGO can output solution information right into a database or spreadsheet making it easier for you to generate reports in the application of your choice.

Powerful Solvers

LINGO is available with a comprehensive set of fast, built-in solvers for Linear, Nonlinear (convex & nonconvex/Global), Quadratic, Quadratically Constrained, Second Order Cone, Stochastic, and Integer optimization. You never have to specify or load a separate solver, because LINGO reads your formulation and automatically selects the appropriate one.

Model Interactively or Create Turn-key Applications

You can build and solve models within LINGO, or you can call LINGO directly from an application you have written. For developing models interactively, LINGO provides a complete modeling environment to build, solve, and analyze your models. For building turn-key solutions, LINGO comes with callable DLL and OLE interfaces that can be called from user written applications. LINGO can also be called directly from an Excel macro or database application.

Extensive Documentation and Help

LINGO provides all of the tools you will need to get up and running quickly. You get the LINGO User Manual, which fully describes the commands and features of the program. Also included with super versions and larger is a copy of Optimization Modeling with LINGO, a comprehensive modeling text discussing all major classes of linear, integer and nonlinear optimization problems. LINGO also comes with dozens of real-world based examples for you to modify and expand.

Native Macintosh Support

LINGO’s user interface has been entirely rewritten to offer native support for the Macintosh and Linux platform. Below is an image of the Mac version running a small nonlinear program:



Enhanced Stochastic Solver

Large linear multistage SP instances solve 60% faster with improved cut management for Nested Benders Decomposition Method.


Better handling of multistage SP models which do not have full-recourse.


Extensions to the parser allow the use of arbitrarily complex functions of stochastic parameters.


Improved Global Solver

Performance of Global solver has been dramatically improved on classes of quadratic problems. In particular, non-convex quadraticproblems rejected by other solvers, or otherwise solvable only slowly to a local optimum by traditional NLP solvers. Can solve somepreviously intractable problems to global optimality, especially financial portfolio models with minimum buy quantities,and/or limit on number of instruments at nonzero level.


Incorporates a new bound tightening process to the linearization procedure and improves solvability of linearized model.


Dramatically faster, more robust performance on many models with functions like @MAX( ), @MIN( ), @ABS( ), x*z where z = 0 or 1, etc.

Faster Solutions on Linear Models with Improved Simplex Solver

Enhancements to the Simplex solvers boost performance on large linear models.


Large models solve an average of 35% faster using primal simplex and 20% faster for dual simplex.


Improved Integer Solver with new features

A new optimization mode has been introduced to ensure reproducibility of runs.


Investigate alternative optima more quickly. Enhancements to the K-Best algorithm allow finding K best solutions in little more time than finding one solution.


Find faster solutions to models with knapsack constraints and block structures using new heuristic algorithms.


New preprocessing level tightens variable bounds for better performance on classes of nonlinear models.


Matrix Functions

There have been a number of new functions were added to LINGO for performing matrix operations.


Supported operations include: eigenvalues and eigenvector computation, matrix determinant, Cholesky factorization, matrix inverse, and matrix transpose.


Linear Regression

The new @REGRESS function for multiple linear regression has been added.


Other Improvements

Tornado charts now supported.

Additional sorting capabilities, convenient for data preparation and solution reporting.

A new date function, @STM2YMDHMS, for converting LINGO’s standard time values into the equivalent calendar date and time.
