Aug. 29 • 11 a.m. ET • Cost: Complimentary

About the webinar

Decision making is more complicated when there isn’t a clear, single-best option to select.

We’ll show you how multi-objective optimization is used to analyze the best tradeoffs among numerous optimal solutions to help enable effective, strategic decision making.

Join this webinar to incorporate mathematical optimization as a tool in the decision making process.

You will learn how to:

  • Build a multi-objective optimization model using the OPTMODEL procedure in SAS Optimization.
  • Interpret the results of the model within the context of the business problem.
  • Construct a Pareto frontier of optimal solutions to visualize the best set of tradeoffs between two competing objectives.
  • Modify the optimization model to accommodate custom scenarios to answer additional business questions.
  • Leverage the flexibility of the OPTMODEL programming syntax to achieve the objectives.
