Job sequencing is a common problem. Excel Solver can help managers make optimal job sequencing decisions to minimize cost.
This series of 13 articles compares Python libraries Pyomo, PuLP, OR-Tools, Gekko, CVXPY, and SciPy for building a linear programming model.
Designing an optimization model is difficult. This article explains common mathematical notation used to define optimization model formulations.
Given available stock of wire and a list of pieces required, what is the best way to cut the stock to fulfil demand while minimizing waste?
We compare a linear programming model written using Julia/JuMP with the same model written using Python/Pyomo.
We present an example of project crashing using an optimization model to help the project manager decide what to do.
