FICO® Xpress Workbench

Rapid collaborative development and deployment of optimization models, services and user friendly solutions

Overview

 

FICO® Xpress Optimization  FICO® Xpress Insight  FICO® Xpress Executor  FICO® Xpress Solver  FICO® Xpress Workbench

 

FICO Xpress Optimization is comprised for four core components: FICO Xpress Insight, FICO Xpress Executor, FICO Xpress Solver and FICO Xpress Workbench. Click on the buttons above to access information on each component.


FICO® Xpress Workbench is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for developing optimization models, services and complete solutions in a web environment. It is based on ACE, a high-performance web-based code editor, which provides syntax highlighting, code completion and folding, and contextual help for Mosel, VDL, XML and R.

It provides direct support for the authoring, editing, executing and debugging of Xpress Mosel models and FICO Xpress Solutions, using a highly collaborative approach with support for sharing, collaborative editing and chat capabilities. There is integration with Tableau® for FICO, facilitating the drag and drop creation of visualizations and dashboards, and an Xpress Tuner GUI for analyzing and tuning optimization performance.
