SAS/OR Software

SAS/OR software provides SAS procedures for operations research and project planning and includes a point-and-click interface to project management. Its capabilities include the following:

  • solving transportation problems

  • linear, integer, and mixed-integer programming

  • nonlinear programming

  • scheduling projects

  • plotting Gantt charts

  • drawing network diagrams

  • solving optimal assignment problems

  • network flow programming

SAS/OR software might be of interest to users of SAS/STAT software for its mathematical programming features. In particular, the NLP procedure in SAS/OR software solves nonlinear programming problems, and it can be used for constrained and unconstrained maximization of user-defined likelihood functions.
