ILOG is the world leader in optimization technology, supplying the world's most powerful and comprehensive components for developing optimization applications. With core algorithms from mathematical programming and constraint programming, the ILOG Optimization Suite is highly effective at solving industrial and research problems in constraint satisfaction and optimization. The ILOG Optimization Suite powers the leading software for supply chain management and logistics optimization.

In this tutorial, we will use a rapid development system to explore basic combinatorial optimization problems. The sample problems will illustrate powerful techniques like constraint propagation and iterative optimization, which are invaluable to solving real-world optimization applications in supply chain and logistics. The tutorial will emphasize hands-on examples and their relationship to larger applications.
