What is Evolver?
Evolver, using innovative “mutations” and combinations of solutions, or “organisms,” is well-suited to finding the best overall answer by exploring the entire universe of possible answers. Plus the use of OptQuest as optimization engine with the unique set of powerful algorithms and sophisticated analysis techniques including metaheuristics optimization, evolutionary algorithms, tabu search and scatter search, to name a few. As a result, OptQuest enables users to shift from a “What if?” approach to a “What’s best?” approach. This includes complicated, nonlinear problems where the best local solution may not be the best absolute answer. After an optimization, the user can choose whether to keep the best solution, or revert the workbook the its pre-optimization state. This makes it easy to decide the best course of action. You can also generate reports directly in Excel for an optimization summary, log of all simulations, and log of progress steps.
