Optimization Solver for OpenOffice.org Calc 2008-05-01
The Linear and Non-Linear Optimization Solver (or simply the Optimization Solver) is designed to compute an optimized set of decision variables that either maximize or minimize a given objective function while also satisfying a set of arbitrary constraints defined by the user.It is widely used in the field of operations research, and can also be a very useful business tool that helps you make an informed decision on a multitude of complex scenarios that you may encounter in your day-to-day business operations.Limitations:· Currently it only solves constrained linear models! An algorithm for non-linear model is being worked on.· A constraint value must be a cell reference. Simply typing a value will not work.· The Reset and Options buttons do absolutely nothing!· It assumes that the model is linear. It does NOT solve a non-linear model yet.What's New in This Release:· Added Spanish translation (contributed by Mario Alfredo Renderos). Otherwise this version is identical to the previous release.
