UIMP: User Interface for Mathematical Programming

  title={UIMP: User Interface for Mathematical Programming},

  journal={ACM Trans. Math. Softw.},
UIMP is a matrix-generator report-writer system designed to aid the reahzation (generation) of mathematical programming models and also the analysis-reporting of the solutions of such models The data-structure facility of the system allows the underlying structure of a user model to be captured and helps to define such models This data-structure feature is not only a powerful modeling aid, it also finds use in the analysis of solutions and report generation The experience of using the system…

A support system for optimization modelling

Computer-Assisted Mathematical Programming (Modelling) System: CAMPS

The system uses program-generator techniques for model creation and contrasts with earlier approaches, which use a special-purpose language to construct models, because no programming skill is required to formulate a model.

FW/SM: A Prototype Structured Modeling Environment

The objective of this article is to describe the capabilities of this implementation as it now stands, and to comment on how it contributes toward fulfilling a previously published agenda for the development of a new generation of modeling environments.

A comparison of mathematical programming modeling systems

This work compares three mathematical programming modeling languages, GAMS, OMNI and MathPro, and formulate four linear programs in each language that are representative of the kinds of model structures one encounters in practice.

Data and Optimisation Modelling: A Tool for Elicitation and Browsing (DOME)

The prototype design of a data and optimisation modelling and elicitation tool (DOME) is presented and a mechanism to browse through the data model, algebraic model, the constraint matrix and the solution representation has been introduced.

Data Driven Modeling: An Application in Scheduling

This paper presents a data driven modeling (DDM) approach to certain types of optimization problems. DDM relinquishes control of the completed model to the user department rather than the operations

A Modern Approach to Computer Systems for Linear Programming

This work proposes a modem LP system — one that takes advantage of such (relatively) new ideas as high-level languages, interactive and virtual operating systems, modular design, and hierarchical file systems.



Software tools

This paper shows how programmers can view substantial parts of what they do as tool building and tool using, and shows how programs can be packaged as tools, so other programmers will use them in preference to building their own.
