## Building and Solving Optimization Models with SAS/OR## There is a newer version of this course.Please see the schedule for the new Building and Solving Optimization Models with SAS/OR course.This course focuses on formulating and solving mathematical optimization models using the OPTMODEL procedure, from inputting data to interpreting output and generating reports. The course covers linear, integer, mixed integer, and nonlinear programming problems, with an emphasis on model formulation and construction.
- formulate and solve linear programming problems using the OPTMODEL procedure
- solve integer and mixed integer programming problems using the OPTMODEL procedure
- solve nonlinear programming problems using the OPTMODEL procedure.
Before attending this course, you should - have completed an undergraduate course in operations research that includes linear programming or have recent experience using linear programming or be comfortable with matrix algebra
- be able to execute SAS programs and create SAS data sets. You can gain this experience by completing the SAS Programming 1: Essentials course.
