Professional licenses

For developer users that want to develop and maintain AIMMS-based optimization applications and models. The AIMMS Developer platform license allows developers to build and modify the model code base, create user interfaces, and develop to-be-embedded components on a personal desktop.

For organizations to deploy AIMMS apps created by developers. The AIMMS PRO platform license provides for users organization-wide to use AIMMS web-based apps via a browser (no installation needed). We offer AIMMS PRO in various prepackaged configurations – Essential, Preferred and Premier – to assure optimal use.

We recommend to use PRO with our managed Cloud platform.

AIMMS Standard License

AIMMS modeling includes several mathematical model types (Linear, Mixed Integer, Nonlinear, Mixed Integer Nonlinear, etc.).

We include the distributables of the COIN-OR solvers CBC (LP/MIP) and IPOPT (NLP) inside the installation package of AIMMS. These open source solvers provide a basic set of solvers to start from.

For mixed integer nonlinear programs (MINLP) models, we offer the built-in AIMMS Outer Approximation (AOA) algorithm. This AOA algorithm helps specify an individual algorithm to obtain better performance and/or a better solution.

AIMMS Solver Extensions

You can extend optimization capabilities in AIMMS with additional commercial solvers such as CPLEX, BARON, CONOPT, KNITRO, SNOPT, MINOS, CP Optimizer, PATH, and more. These solvers are offered as add-ons to support a broader class of mathematical programs, or to boost performance and/or use alternative algorithms.

AIMMS Open solver interface

Solver developers can link their LP, MIP, NLP, QP or MCP solver to AIMMS using the AIMMS Open Solver Interface. A solver must be authorized by the AIMMS company to use the AIMMS Open Solver Interface.

For more information, see our Solvers pages in the AIMMS documentation.

Academic licenses

The Free AIMMS Academic License is an unrestricted license for academics (students, teachers, professors, and researchers) to use AIMMS at no charge.

Request a Free AIMMS Academic License

The free academic license includes:

  • standard AIMMS developer use
  • standard solvers use (CPLEX, CP Optimizer, CONOPT, CBC, IPOPT, etc.)
  • IP range protection, for use on university networks
  • off-line use (after activation)

Solve almost any problem and run comparative analysis using: CPLEX, CP Optimizer, CONOPT, ODH-CPLEX, MINOS, SNOPT, AOA, PATH, XA, CBC and IPOPT.

Connect your own GUROBI license with AIMMS using our link.

Includes the add-on for Robust Optimization, plus options for Scenario Analysis and Stochastic Programming.

We currently do not offer Academic Licenses for AIMMS SC Navigator.

For academic organizations which need a network setup or additional solvers, read about our extended academic license below.

If you are eligible for an academic license (see Academic terms & conditions below), but require either a network setup or additional solvers (BARON/Knitro), we offer two types of paid licenses for academic use:

  1. Network license: provides an unlimited number of unrestricted concurrent AIMMS sessions within a Local Area Network. This means that everyone within your university department’s network can work with AIMMS at the same time.
    The base fee for a network license is $/€ 450.
  2. Single User license: provides AIMMS without connection to the network. This paid academic single user license is an unrestricted stand-alone license of AIMMS, ideal for an instructor or researcher to use outside the university network.
    The base fee for a single user license is $/€ 100.

Both licenses can only be ordered for academic use by students, teachers, professors, and researchers.

Included in each license:

  • CPLEX, XA, CP Optimizer, CONOPT, MINOS, SNOPT, AOA, and PATH solver
  • COIN-OR solvers CBC and IPOPT
  • Robust Optimization add-on
  • size restricted BARON (10×10) solver
  • size restricted Knitro (600×600) solver
  • GUROBI link-only
  • Open Solver Interface
  • free maintenance

Additional solvers

The Paid AIMMS Academic Licences provided above can be further extended with the following (unrestricted) solvers at special academic prices:

 

Extension options Price (add-on)
BARON – Single user $/€ 100
BARON – Network license $/€ 450
Knitro – Single user $/€ 400
Knitro – Network license

* 2 user

* 10 user

* unlimited

 

$/€ 1000
