Premium Solver Platform is a powerful, comprehensive optimization package that is today’s most effective non-linear programming upgrade for the Excel Solver. Here’s why:

Premium Solver Platform:

Solves Much Larger Non-Linear Programming Problems Than Excel Solver.

  • Solves Smooth Nonlinear, Global, and Non-Smooth optimization problems to 500 variables.
  • Solves Quadratic and Conic optimization problems up to 2,000 variables.
  • Solves optimization problems with up to 2,000 integer constraints. (That’s 10 times the capacity of the standard Excel Solver.)
  • Upgradeable to unlimited variables and constraints through three plug-in Solver Engines - the LSSQP Solver, KNITRO Solver, and MOSEK Solver (for Convex Non-Linear problems).
  • Upgradeable with the Large-Scale SQP Solver for fast solution of large-scale Linear, Nonlinear, Integer, Quadratic, Conic, and even Non-Smooth problems.

The Compatible Upgrade for the standard Excel Solver.

  • Premium Solver Platform is 100% upward compatible with the Solver in Excel, that Frontline Systems originally developed for Microsoft.
  • Existing spreadsheet models and VBA macros designed for the standard Excel Solver with work as-is with Premium Solver Platform.
  • All optimization models are created within the Excel spreadsheet environment. Familiarity with Excel means a very short learning curve with Premium Solver Platform.
  • Optimization models in Premium Solver Platform can span multiple worksheets, with decision variables and constraints on any worksheet.

Solves New Types of Optimization Problems.

  • Can quickly optimize models that have Excel functions such as MIN, MAX, IF, AND, OR, NOT that make the model non-smooth and cause problems for conventional optimizers.
  • Uses a unique combination of Genetic Algorithms and classical non-linear optimization methods to optimize models with any Excel functions – even user-written functions.
  • Enables solving of Second Order Conic Problems (SOCP) – the natural generalization of linear and quadratic programming.

Solves Optimization Problems Much Faster than Excel Solver.

  • Speed increases vary with the size and complexity of your model, but many users have seen solution times from 2-3 to 100 times faster or more.

For Programmers, Premium Solver Platform Features a New Object-Oriented API.

  • The new API makes it much easier to developer powerful custom applications in Excel, and to move applications from Excel to a programming language such as C++, VB.NET, Java, C#, F#, and MATLAB.

Has a Winning Track Record With Thousands of Users Over Many Years.

  • Frontline Solvers have been proven in use by nearly 200,000 users.
  • Over 5,000 companies, many of them Fortune 1000 and Global 2000 firms, are Frontline Systems’ customers.
  • Frontline Systems’ software is the overwhelming favorite tool in its field for teaching these methods to MBA students in thousands of universities throughout the world.
