AIMMS Launches Community Edition, Enabling More People to Tap Into the Power of Optimization Modeling

AIMMS Community-Edition

The product offers a free entry point for anyone interested in building mathematical optimization models and applications using a feature-rich IDE 

Haarlem, the Netherlands, March 18, 2021 – AIMMS, the creators of the industry-leading prescriptive analytics platform, have announced the release of a product that gives data scientists and developers a free entry point into the world of optimization modeling. For more than 30 years, AIMMS has been used by operations research professionals at large, global companies to solve highly complex business problems. Today, the company is enabling more people to expand their analytics toolbox with AIMMS Community Edition 

Discover the power of optimization 

Using advanced mathematical optimization engines under the hood, AIMMS provides recommendations against a (combined) objective, such as minimal costoptimal service and optimal dispatchUsers can then analyze various options (scenarios) through an interactive user interface. AIMMS Community Edition gives people instant access to this technology, enabling data scientists to expand their know-how in this area, and giving experienced operations research practitioners the possibility to boost their modeling expertise.  

The Community Edition includes access to open-source solvers like CBC (for linear and mixed-integer problems), IPOPT (for nonlinear problems), and AOA solver (for mixed-integer nonlinear problems). It’s available for anyone to use for personal, non-commercial projects.  

Whether it’s crafting a plan to reduce your personal carbon footprint, creating a schedule for your kids’ school or simply to learn and experiment, AIMMS Community Edition is ideal for those who want to apply modeling to improve decision making. It’s also a great companion for recent graduates who previously used an AIMMS Academic License but want to continue playing with the software at no cost, or showcase their AIMMS skills to prospective employers
