Find unused identifiers in your AIMMS project


Applications that are around for a while clearly have value to the organization. However, some identifiers such as sets, parameters, variables, and procedures in that application may no longer be used, because:

  1. They were created for analyzing and testing a particular circumstance. Once the circumstance is handled, the corresponding identifiers can be removed.

  2. As the application evolves, some functionality may become obsolete.

There are some disadvantages of having obsolete identifiers in the application:

  1. It may confuse your successor, as he/she wonders why an obsolete identifier was added.

  2. For a defined parameter or set, it may take up a significant amount of memory and thereby also increase the size of cases.
