Getting Started Tutorials¶
As a beginner AIMMS user, the best starting point is the Tutorials.
Tutorial for Beginners¶
The Tutorial for Beginners is a one-hour tutorial designed as the bare minimum needed to build simple models using the AIMMS Model Explorer. Data values are entered manually using data pages, and you can build a page with objects to view and modify the data.
Tutorial for Professionals¶
The tutorial for professionals covers advanced language features and building tools.
modeling time using horizon and calendar
using quantities and units
linking to a database
connecting to an external DLL (Dynamic Link Library)
Below you can download a zip file containing the auxiliary project files mentioned in the above document, as well as a copy of the completed tutorial project.
The Tutorial for Professionals uses compound sets, which is a deprecated feature only available in older AIMMS versions. We are working to update this tutorial to be compatible with the newest versions of AIMMS.
AIMMS learning game¶
Extend your AIMMS knowledge and modeling skills with an AIMMS based-game. It follows a witch apprentice who rises in rank in the witches’ guild by solving increasingly difficult modeling and AIMMS assignments.
The game is played in a developer version of AIMMS. Each level includes a tutorial explaining the AIMMS functionality used.
Completion of each A-level provides you with the password needed to enter the next level. A-levels focus on optimization modeling, while B-levels focus on AIMMS functionality.
Level 2b uses a MS Access database and therefore we advise you to download a 32-bit version of AIMMS. However 32-bit versions are only available in older versions. We are working to update this tutorial to be compatible with the newest versions of AIMMS.
