"Excellent Constraint Programming Functionality"

What do you like best?

Well-developed constraint-based scheduling functionality. Efficient interaction with a variety of solvers. From a development perspective, the integrated GUI allows for easy evaluation of model output and troubleshooting.

What do you dislike?

The language is not intuitive; it takes awhile to get up to speed, and you have to be creative with workarounds.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend this product. I've found it flexible enough to handle a wide variety of problems (of course, licenses to many of the solvers must be purchased separately), and the integrated GUI makes it easy to audit.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Used its constraint programming functionality for inventory routing and scheduling. Currently collaborating with another team on a production planning model, and the use of libraries and the data integration features are making the process much easier than it otherwise would have been.

"S&OP gives us more insight in demand at longer term "

What do you like best?

By using S&OP in AIMMS we are able to have more insight in forecasting and its accuracy at longer term. This eventually will result in improving balancing demand and supply including our inventory position. The tool built in AIMMS is used friendly and custom made to our requirements. Still some modifications will be made during further implementation of S&OP on a global level.

What do you dislike?

Building and maintaining the tool is a specialized activity and therefore we outsourced this to Ortec (as a partner of AIMMS.) Although Ortec did an excellent job with building the tool, it needed more than anticipated resources for supporting this including testing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With the AIMMS S&OP tool we have better information to make business decisions within our global supply chain including the alignment of our sales subsidiaries and other disciplines like sales, manufacturing and finance.

"Great development tool."

What do you like best?

I like the language structure and the ability to write efficient code including functions and procedures. Integration with things like Excel is also excellent.

What do you dislike?

AIMMS is great for development and I think we produce very nice software. The run-time portion of AIMMS is quite expensive, though, so we can't use it for all clients.

Recommendations to others considering the product

AIMMS is a great development tool and the code written is very efficient and easy to maintain. The structure can seem a bit restrictive when transferring from something like GAMS, but after a short while the structure makes sense and you would miss it if going back. AIMMS seems a bit expensive for smaller applications - we can only use it for large customers who are going to get a big pay-off.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We solve all kinds of mathematical problems. We are currently solving warehousing, transportation, coal exporting and oil field development problems.

"Power and amazing tool"

What do you like best?

The interface to define and program the problem and the potential to show the solution. Also the capacity of the software to connect to external data sources for reading and writing, that allows to easy load big amounts of data. The results can be shown in a very different and useful ways, which is very interesting to detect important key points and options.

What do you dislike?

It is mainly thought to run in batch mode, not in continuous mode, it is necessary to program special code, it also needs to run in foreground and the code can be visible. It would be nice to be able to compile the project to be used by third people, not only with AIMMS PRO. It would be nice to have other communication protocols, like OPC. For small business, it is not easy to use since AIMMS PRO is not necessary and may be so expensive. A different way to share a license, like a dongle or similar may also be interesting for small projects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I is a very friendly application where you do not really need programming skills to solve not so complex problems. Once you have a very difficult problem, you have many options to program it starting from scratch or using parts of other projects with not so much programming knowledge.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Production optimization, demand and supply planning, logistics, distribution, simulation. We have mainly found benefits on operations where we have found new more efficient run possibilities which have provide the opportunity to sometimes justify new investments in our production plants.

"AIMMS review from Philip Bom (ORTEC)"

What do you like best?

Very easy to set up a mathematical model that can interact with powerful solvers and build an user interface around it.

What do you dislike?

When projects are expanding the number of strange things happening seems to increase. The several page objects are in some sense limited. They are close to being awesome, but just need some finishing touch.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best in the field. However you are not fully free in creating and designing GUIs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

supply chain design, production scheduling, fleet composition, capacity analysis, etc.

"Powerful yet need to be more user friendly"

What do you like best?

It is really flexible for modeling complicated optimization model.

The tool enables a lot of features that packaging doesn't support.

What do you dislike?

It is not user friendly and the syntax is hard to debug most of the time.

I have found it challenging to use this tool when I have client deadlines or need to deliver model result in short time frame.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Network optimization for manufacturer, mining, consumer goods company.

We were able to help the client size the prize of their network expansions, or PMI using this tool.

"Best productivity in an Analytics software"

What do you like best?

It is very easy to develop an optimization model in AIMMS and then deploy it to several people with all the usual requisites of a corporate environment. Also, handling data on AIMMS is much easier than in many other special purpose tools.

What do you dislike?

For the AIMMS PRO platform, there is only support for Google Chrome right now.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Short, medium and long term planning of Energy, Oil&Gas. Also, Portfolio, Investment and risk analysis. Information now flows in the several planning layers and we can measure the quality of our policies.
