OptWorks is a suite of eight optimization algorithms designed to solve complex problems from financial analysis, logistics management, engineering, scientific analysis, and strategic investment planning. Tired of looking for optimum solutions to your Excel-based problems by hand? Excel's standard Solver not working for you due to the presence of multiple "suboptimal" solutions or many discrete variables? The powerful Genetic Algorithm and Simulated Annealing engines in OptWorks are for you.

OptWorks: Excel® is an add-in product for Microsoft® Excel®. A Windows version is currently available for Excel® 2000, XP and 2003. A Mac OS X version is coming soon. OptWorks: Excel® can be purchased for the low introductory price of $199.00 (electronic product download). Boxed versions are $249.00.
