 Automatic and dynamic algorithm parameter control
IBM ILOG CPLEX Optimizer automatically determines "smart" settings for a wide range of algorithm parameters, usually resulting in optimal mathematical programming solution performance. However, for a more handson approach, dozens of parameters may be manually adjusted, including algorithmic strategy controls, output information controls, optimization duration limits, and numerical tolerances. An automated tuning tool evaluates different parameter settings, recommending the best. Callbacks allow for even more control.  Fast, automatic restarts
 Linear programs can be modified, and then solved again in a fraction of the original solution time.
 Mixed integer programs can be modified and solved starting from a pool of prior solutions  A variety of problem modification options, such as:
 The ability to add and delete variables
 The ability to add and delete constraints
 The ability to modify objective, righthand side, bound and matrix coefficients
