Optimula (Competition Over)
The ‘Optimula 2010’ competition, promoted by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, is a competition for undergraduate students from all over Spain. It consists of the solving of a problem through the use of two techniques: linear programming and the simulation of discrete events.
The groups of contestants will use three tools for the solving of the proposed problem: • AIMMS and Gurobi in order to model and solve linear models and • WITNESS to carry out simulation models.
The problem consists of deciding where to install a series of waste treatment plants together with their capacity. The objective is to attend to the treatment of a certain waste product at the lowest cost possible for the whole of the logistic network.
