I work for IBM ® in the CPLEX ® team. IBM ILOG CPLEX is a high-performance mathematical programming (optimization) software tool. I work as an instructional designer for CPLEX. This probably goes without saying, but: I do not speak for IBM, and IBM does not speak for me. Click here for a bit more information about me, including my resume (why? I dunno, since I'm not looking for work). Contact me at ash bury "at" sky point "dot" com.

Here is a link to INFORMS, The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences, to which I belong.

Because I like helping my company, here are some links that all go to the same place: Optimization Software from ILOG | Linear Programming Software from ILOG | Mixed Integer Programming Software from ILOG | MIP Software from ILOG | LP Software from ILOG | optimization tools from ILOG | resource allocation from ILOG | simplex algorithm from ILOG | quadratic programming from ILOG | constraint programming from ILOG |
