OMPR (Optimization Modelling Package) is a DSL to model and solve Mixed Integer Linear Programs. It is inspired by the excellent Jump project in Julia.

Here are some problems you could solve with this package:

  • What is the cost minimal way to visit a set of clients and return home afterwards?
  • What is the optimal conference time table subject to certain constraints (e.g. availability of a projector)?
  • Sudokus

The Wikipedia article gives a good starting point if you would like to learn more about the topic.

I am always happy to get bug reports or feedback.

Install

Development version

To install the current development version use devtools:

devtools::install_github("dirkschumacher/ompr")
devtools::install_github("dirkschumacher/ompr.roi")

Available solver bindings

Package Description Build Linux Build Windows Test coverage
ompr.roi Bindings to ROI (GLPK, Symphony, CPLEX etc.) Build Status Build Status Windows Coverage Status

A simple example:

library(dplyr)
library(ROI)
library(ROI.plugin.glpk)
library(ompr)
library(ompr.roi)

result <- MIPModel() %>%
  add_variable(x, type = "integer") %>%
  add_variable(y, type = "continuous", lb = 0) %>%
  set_bounds(x, lb = 0) %>%
  set_objective(x + y, "max") %>%
  add_constraint(x + y <= 11.25) %>%
  solve_model(with_ROI(solver = "glpk")) 
get_solution(result, x)
get_solution(result, y)

API

These functions currently form the public API. More detailed docs can be found in the package function docs or on the website

DSL

Backends

There are currently two backends. A backend is the function that initializes an empty model.

  • MIPModel() is the standard MILP Model
  • MILPModel() is a new backend specifically optimized for linear models and is about 1000 times faster than MIPModel(). It has slightly different semantics, as it is vectorized. Currently experimental, but it will replace the MIPModel eventually.

Solver

Solvers are in different packages. ompr.ROI uses the ROI package which offers support for all kinds of solvers.

Further Examples

Please take a look at the docs for bigger examples.

Knapsack

library(dplyr)
library(ROI)
library(ROI.plugin.glpk)
library(ompr)
library(ompr.roi)
max_capacity <- 5
n <- 10
weights <- runif(n, max = max_capacity)
MIPModel() %>%
  add_variable(x[i], i = 1:n, type = "binary") %>%
  set_objective(sum_expr(weights[i] * x[i], i = 1:n), "max") %>%
  add_constraint(sum_expr(weights[i] * x[i], i = 1:n) <= max_capacity) %>%
  solve_model(with_ROI(solver = "glpk")) %>% 
  get_solution(x[i]) %>% 
  filter(value > 0)

Bin Packing

An example of a more difficult model solved by symphony.

library(dplyr)
library(ROI)
library(ROI.plugin.symphony)
library(ompr)
library(ompr.roi)
max_bins <- 10
bin_size <- 3
n <- 10
weights <- runif(n, max = bin_size)
MIPModel() %>%
  add_variable(y[i], i = 1:max_bins, type = "binary") %>%
  add_variable(x[i, j], i = 1:max_bins, j = 1:n, type = "binary") %>%
  set_objective(sum_expr(y[i], i = 1:max_bins), "min") %>%
  add_constraint(sum_expr(weights[j] * x[i, j], j = 1:n) <= y[i] * bin_size, i = 1:max_bins) %>%
  add_constraint(sum_expr(x[i, j], i = 1:max_bins) == 1, j = 1:n) %>%
  solve_model(with_ROI(solver = "symphony", verbosity = 1)) %>% 
  get_solution(x[i, j]) %>%
  filter(value > 0) %>%
  arrange(i)
