New release of this Toolbox is powered by Optimus technology from Noesis Solutions.

Maple’s Global Optimization Toolbox provides access to world-class optimization technology from inside the rich technical document environment of Maple

With the new Maple Global Optimization Toolbox powered by Optimus technology, customers will be able to determine the best solutions to their most challenging problems.

Maplesoft™ has announced a major new release of the Maple™ Global Optimization Toolbox for solving a wide variety of optimization problems in mathematics, engineering, and the sciences. For this new release, Maplesoft has partnered with Noesis Solutions to develop a new version of the Maple Global Optimization Toolbox that is powered by Optimus® technology. Optimus, from Noesis Solutions, is a platform for simulation process integration and design optimization. Its powerful, proven optimization technology is now available to Maple users as the engine behind the Global Optimization Toolbox, reducing solution times and expanding the scope of problems this toolbox can solve.

The objective of global optimization is to find the best possible solution in models that have a number of sub-optimal local solutions that meet the requirements but are not the best possible answer. Such problems can be very difficult to solve, and so engineers and researchers are often forced to settle for sub-optimal solutions. The result can be inferior designs and operations, and related expenses in terms of reliability, time, money, and other resources. The Maple Global Optimization Toolbox provides a powerful set of global solvers that find the best possible solution to the problem, so compromises do not need to be made.

Leveraging the optimization technology from Optimus, the Maple Global Optimization Toolbox is now even more powerful. It features new solver methods and many more options that allow customers to guide the search for the solution based on their knowledge of the particular problem. For example, customers can select different methods for locating promising new points in the design space or control the balance between computation speed and probability of success. Using these new methods and options, customers can reach their solutions faster and solve more problems than ever before.

“More and more, in today’s competitive environment, companies cannot settle for second-best when it comes to solving their design problems,” says Dr. Laurent Bernardin, Executive Vice-President and Chief Scientist at Maplesoft. “They need the best possible solution to deliver the best, most cost-effective products to their customers. With the new Maple Global Optimization Toolbox powered by Optimus technology, customers will be able to determine the best solutions to their most challenging problems.”

"We are pleased that Maplesoft has chosen our industry-proven Optimus technology to develop their new Global Optimization Toolbox,” says Naji El Masri, Noesis Solutions Chief Technology Officer. “Thanks to its robustness, Optimus technology is increasingly being adopted by software development companies like Maplesoft to extend the power of their solutions. Inside Maple's rich technical document environment, users can develop full solutions that include computations, documentation, visualizations, interactive applications, and more. With the new Global Optimization Toolbox based on Optimus technology, they can now also find the optimal design solution more quickly and effectively."
