FICO Xpress Workbench

FICO Xpress Workbench is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for developing advanced analytic and optimization models, services and complete business-facing solutions in a web environment. It provides direct support for the authoring, editing, executing and debugging of Xpress Mosel models and FICO Xpress Solutions. Xpress Workbench leverages a highly collaborative development approach with support for sharing and collaborative editing. Models written in Xpress Mosel or Python can be easily deployed into Xpress Insight applications with View Designer by drag-and-drop actions. Optimization models can be easily profiled and tuned for better performance. Browse the FICO Xpress Optimization product documentation where you will find installation guides, help for all four modules and examples. Visit the FICO Optimization Community to download software trials, get support and talk to the experts.


FICO solutions offer a wide range of capabilities, empowering you to make smarter, personalized decisions, streamline operations, and improve the customer experience.
