SAS Optimization Essentials: A Step-by-Step Guide for New Users of PROC OPTMODEL By T. Glenn Bailey

T. Glenn Bailey’s SAS Optimization Essentials: A Step-by-Step Guide for New Users of PROC OPTMODEL shows you how easy it is to employ optimization using PROC OPTMODEL, while simultaneously leveraging the overall SAS environment. With this book you will quickly bridge the gap between optimization formulation and solution implementation, by effectively translating mathematical models into SAS using PROC OPTMODEL. Part 1 introduces essential PROC OPTMODEL programming, declaration, and procedural syntax; data I/O; and extensive examples of linear programming and mixed-integer programming problems. Part 2 provides advanced examples of the topics covered in part 1, and reviews how PROC OPTMODEL can be used with SAS/GRAPH and the Macro Programming Language.

SAS Optimization Essentials is unique in that it focuses on the essential statements and syntax necessary to run a majority of optimization problems, and arranges the presentation of PROC OPTMODEL’s procedures and syntax to follow the process of mathematically formulating an optimization problem. Loaded with examples, the book teaches the reader how to "think in PROC OPTMODEL" the same way they already "think in mathematical terminology" when considering an optimization problem. If you are a SAS user and want to use SAS for optimization, this is the book for you.
