Why AMPL?

The AMPL system supports the entire optimization modeling lifecycle — formulation, testing, deployment, and maintenance — in an integrated way promotes rapid development and reliable results. Using a high-level algebraic representation that describes optimization models in the same ways that people think about them, AMPL can provide the head start you need to successfully implement large-scale optimization projects.

AMPL integrates a modeling language for describing optimization data, variables, objectives, and constraints; a command language for debugging models and analyzing results; and a scripting language for manipulating data and implementing optimization strategies. All use the same concepts to promote streamlined application-building.

New AMPL APIs offer programming interfaces for embedding AMPL models into enterprise systems written in a variety of languages.
