Optimization Solver for Calc

The Linear and Non-Linear Optimization Solver (or simply the Optimization Solver) is designed to compute an optimized set of decision variables that either maximize or minimize a given objective function while also satisfying a set of arbitrary constraints. It is widely used in the field of operations research, and is a very useful business and scientific tool that will help you make an informed decision on a multitude of complex scenarios that you may encounter in your day-to-day business operations or scientific research.
