Product Overview

Analytica Optimizer

Analytica Optimizer is the highest edition level of Analytica. It includes all Enterprise features, plus the addition of powerful solver engines. It discovers decision values that minimize or maximize any quantified objective, subject to constraints. In cases where an objective quantity is not present, it finds feasible solutions within constraint boundaries. 

It handles Linear Programming, Quadratic Programming, and general Non-Linear Programming, and automatically distinguishes among all of them. Decision variables can  be continuous, semi-continuous, discrete (Integer or Boolean), or mixed. 

Analytica Optimizer integrates optimization capability with all of Analytica's core features including: Monte Carlo simulation and Intelligent Arrays, simplifying model structure, and improving visual accessibility.
