Solving extremely large scale optimization problems using FICO's Xpress Optimization Suite


presentation slides


Even vast improvements in optimization solver engine speed have not been sufficient to deal with the challenge of massive problems.

Many optimization problems are too large to fit into memory or too hard to solve at all, or, for many applications, too hard to solve within the required time. This is when decomposition -- breaking the problem into subproblems and solving them either sequentially or in parallel -- is the solution.

We will present:
- Decomposition techniques from a practical perspective
- How the FICO Xpress Optimization Suite provides two approaches for decomposition
- How multi-problem and multi-model approaches work within the Xpress-Mosel modeling language
- How FICO clients have addressed "super-size" problems using Xpress
