Premium Solver Platform
Premium Solver Platform is a comprehensive package of high-performance tools for optimizing the allocation of scarce resources, such as products to warehouses and shipping routes, and other distribution and logistics problems. See example models that show how you can use it to minimize transportation costs between plants, distribution centers and retail locations.
It is the most effective linear programming upgrade currently available for the Excel Solver. Here’s why:
Premium Solver Platform:
Helps Minimize Distribution Costs.
- Helps you allocate resources and minimize costs with industry-leading optimization techniques and Solver engines.
Solves Much Larger Distribution Optimization Problems than Excel Solver.
- Solves Linear Programming problems up to 8,000 variables. (That’s 40 times the capacity of the standard Excel Solver.)
- Solves Quadratic Programming problems up to 2,000 variables (10 times the capacity of the Excel Solver).
- An upgrade to Premium Solver Platform, the Extended Large-Scale Linear Programming Solver Engine, can solve linear programming problems with an unlimited number of variables.
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 Optimization Problems Much Faster than Excel Solver.
- Linear Programming Problems can often be solved 10 to 20 times faster, depending on the complexity of your model.
- Linear Mixed-Integer Problems can often be solved 50 to 200 times faster or more.
- Non-Linear Problems can be solved much faster, depending on the complexity of your model and the types of functions you use.
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.
