RE: Excel Question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Most solver add-ins cost anywhere from $400 and up. There is even an upgrade
to the Excel Solver available from Palisade makes
a genetic algorithm solver called Evolver (which I use a lot) which is
better at finding global maxima but does not guarantee a completely optimal
solution. As JPRiley indicated, a tabular solution (which is easily graphed)
will give you the fastest result.
