We've collated many interesting optimization models in our GitHub repository. The focus is on Excel and Python models.
We describe an example of how to represent price breaks in a linear programming model, built in Excel using Solver or OpenSolver.
Allocating people to teams is a task common in both sport and business. We allocate 32 people to 4 teams that are as balanced as possible.
We've collated links to dozens of websites about optimization modelling. The links are organized into several categories.
We replicate a wood cutting pattern model from a published academic paper. Surprisingly, we find a better optimal solution.
We present an example of project crashing using an optimization model to help the project manager decide what to do.
