Join Curt Frye for an in-depth discussion in this video Finding a solution using Solver, part of Solving Optimization and Scheduling Problems in Excel.
- Once you have set up your work sheet,…you can use it's content to create a solver model.…In this movie…I will run quickly through a sample solution…providing just an overview of the process.…You will get much more detail,…not to mention multiple examples…in future chapters.…My sample file is the…CreatingModel Excel workbook,…and you can find that in the chapter one folder…of your exercise files collection.…This is another copy of the workbook that I…commented on in a previous movie,…so I'll just give a quick summary here.…
I have five mixtures,…each of which has a specific cost,…and a number of units to mix.…In the end I want to mix 13 units…at the lowest possible cost,…and the final mixture must contain, at least,…these minimum required amounts…of these four input crystals.…With that overview in mind,…let's get into solver and create our solution.…I'll open the Data tab on the ribbon,…and in the Analysis group, click Solver,…and there is the Solver Parameters dialogue box.…
We'll just drag it a little bit over to the side.…
