A beginners course that does not require any prerequisites.

Other Courses

 

Feel free to explore what is available in the platform.

 

How-To/Documentation webpages

 

We have many how-to pages that can help in understanding different aspects of AIMMS development.

I like working from examples, with a more hands-on/practical approach, so these suggestions are in line with that idea.

 

Examples

 

Some great examples are available to download and learn – they are open sourced.

We also accompany a nice description of the model/code implementation.

 

I will point out the more recent ones that utilize a more interesting/advanced WebUI interface:
