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 17 includes a number of significant enhancements and new features.
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.
|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, … more
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, … more
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, … more
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, … more
|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 (in printed form and available via the online Help), 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, … more
MORE CONSTRAINT TYPES SUPPORTED
Several new functions and constraint types are recognized, e.g., the @AllDiff constraint for general integer variables. The @AllDiff function allows one to specify a set of integer variables, such that each variable in the set must have a unique value, different from all other variables in the set.
MOST RECENT MODELING LANGUAGE AND FEATURE ENHANCEMENTS
New capability to pass arguments to user-defined procedures.
Support of data frame style input in Data and Calc sections has been added.
New functions for programmatically reading input data in Calc sections.
New function for retrieving the next best solution to a binary integer programming model. The function allows you to examine and/or display variable values and decide if further solutions should be generated, or it can be called repeatedly to iterate through all feasible solutions.
New function for displaying space time charts.
New functions for performing QR factorization of matrices and performing matrix multiplication.
Option for specifying the default starting point for variables.
FASTER SOLUTIONS ON LINEAR MODELS WITH IMPROVED SIMPLEX SOLVER
Enhancements to the Simplex solvers boost performance on linear models. Large models solve an average of 20% faster using primal simplex and 15% faster for dual simplex.s.
IMPROVED INTEGER SOLVER
New symmetry detection capabilities dramatically reduce the time required to prove optimality on certain classes of models with integer variables. Performance has been improved on Markowitz portfolio problems with minimum buy quantities, and/or limit on number of instruments at nonzero level. Other enhancements provide faster solutions on certain task assignment-like models.
GLOBAL SOLVER ENHANCEMENTS
Stability and robustness of the Global solver has been improved through several enhancements to quadratic recognition and range reduction. Improved exploitation of convexity of certain ratio constraints, e.g., as found in heat exchanger network design problems.
