Microsoft Solver Foundation

Solver Foundation is an extensible framework that helps you model and solve complex problems by:

  • Modeling and solving scenarios by using constraints, goals, and data.
  • Programming in the Optimization Modeling Language (OML), in C# imperatively, in F# functionally, or in any .NET Framework language.
  • Integrating third-party solvers, such as Gurobi, Mosek™, FICO™ Xpress, LINDO, CPLEX®, and lp_solve.
  • Using familiar interfaces in Microsoft Office Excel and SharePoint to create and solve models.
