Solver Foundation

Microsoft Solver Foundation

Solver Foundation makes it easier to build and solve real optimization models. Solver Foundation includes a declarative modeling language (OML) for specifying optimization models; a .NET API and runtime (Solver Foundation Services) for model creation, reporting, and analysis; and powerful built-in solvers. Key features include:

  • Modeling and solving scenarios by using constraints, goals, and data.
  • Programming in the Optimization Modeling Language (OML), in C# imperatively, in F# functionally, or in any .NET language.
  • Built-in solvers for commonly encountered model types.
  • Integration with popular solvers such as Gurobi, Ziena Knitro, Frontline Solver Platform SDK™, Mosek™, FICO™ Xpress, LINDO, and lp_solve.
  • Interfaces to familiar tools such as Microsoft Office Excel and SharePoint to create and solve models.

Microsoft Solver Foundation is a .NET solution for mathematical optimization and modeling. Solver Foundation makes it easier to build and solve real-world optimization models by providing a .NET API and runtime for model creation, reporting, and analysis; a declarative language (OML) for model specification; and powerful built-in solvers.
