The OPTMODEL Procedure

The OPTMODEL procedure, a general purpose optimization modeling language, can also be used for concisely modeling mixed integer linear programming problems. In fact, except for the declaration of some subset of variables to be integer or binary, modeling these problems is quite analogous to modeling LPs. Within OPTMODEL you can declare a model, pass it directly to various solvers, and review the solver result. You can also save an instance of a mixed integer linear model in data set form for use by PROC OPTMILP. For more details, see Chapter 5: The OPTMODEL Procedure.
