Product Update - March 2020: AIMMS 4.72, Demand Forecasting App launched, Map Widget and more


This post is an archive of the Product Update email sent by AIMMS Product Owner, @Gertjan de Lange.



While we are in turbulent times with the coronavirus impacting our lives in many different ways, we continue to support our customers and deliver on product improvements. Our team, across locations, is primarily working from home. Our development team is quickly adjusting to this new way of working and we hope that this will not impact productivity. We will keep you informed.

AIMMS 4.72 to be released soon

In a few days, we expect 4.72 to be released with some important updates. First, we have made the List Widget available as an Experimental Feature, as described in our community. The widget allows you to provide some great end user support. For example, for tasks. It also enables you to build custom legends.

We are also introducing an experimental ‘CurrentPage’ feature (for the WebUI) to detect the location of the end user, such that we can use this information to steer the workflow, show certain information, or do page-specific validations. Since this interaction can be complex, we will collect feedback before launching it as formal feature.  

Furthermore, we will upgrade the CP Optimizer to the latest 12.10 version. This release can increase the performance of your Constraint Programming models significantly. We look forward to hearing about your experiences with it!  

Demand Forecasting Navigator is now available


In case you missed it, last week, we announced the launch of Demand Forecasting Navigator. This new App in our supply chain planning suite automates tedious, manual tasks like sifting through data, so planners can focus on important trends and outliers. It uses machine learning algorithms to continuously fine tune your forecast.

Map Widget extension 

We are excited to share more information about our upcoming Map object extensions. Soon, you will be able to add heat maps, color and store focus arcs, icons to nodes, create tooltips, and more! For details, check out this post (make sure to create an account in our community if you don't have one).

In addition, we will enable you to add your Google© API key to display a Google Map background in the Map Widget. Please be sure to check licensing conditions before doing so! 

DateTime Picker and Localization update 


We are still working hard on the DateTime picker and location features I announced in the fall last year. We are making some adjustments to ensure we can do this well. This work is happening in the AIMMS core. It requires a diligent approach and time to make sure future models and Apps work well. We hope to release this in the second half of Q2.
