MPSIII products are available for most popular computing environments. Please call for information about any computing environments not listed.
IBM-Compatible Personal Computers
- Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, & XP
- PC Networks (Windows NT, Novell Netware, and others)
- Sun Microsystems SPARC/Sun OS or Solaris
- IBM RS-6000/AIX
- Hewlett Packard HP 9000/HP-UX
- Silicon Graphics
- IBM compatible mainframes MVS or VM/CMS
- Hard Disk Storage
- The MPSIII system requires from 5 to 15 megabytes of hard disk space depending on the components selected.
- Random Access Memory
- The MPSIII optimizers (C-WHIZ and MIPIII) require sufficient memory to hold the entire model. This could range from about 2 MBytes to more than 512 MBytes. The amount of memory required to enter and solve problems depends on the size of the problem. By taking advantage of supersparsity, memory requirements are minimized and are often less than half that required by other solvers. Contact us for estimates of LP
memory requirements (please provide number of variables, constraints, and non-zeros for an
- CPU Requirements
- Solving linear and mixed integer programming problems is computationally intensive, therefore a fast Pentium PC is recommended; the faster the better!
- Compilers and Other Software Tools
- The C-WHIZ Linear Optimizer and MIPIII, require no additional
software for operation. The OML Library will require only the native C compiler for most systems. For PCs, where compilers are not included as part of the system, specific compilers are recommended for use with OML. These are the most popular 32 bit compilers and include: Microsoft Visual C/C++, Visual Basic, Compaq Fortran, and Borland C/C++.
- OML is also available as a Dynamic Link Library (DLL) and can be used in a 32 bit environment that supports calls to DLL's, such as Microsoft Visual Basic.
For systems where a native C compiler is not provided, please contact us for more information.
