TIMES is a sophisticated energy model generator implemented in GAMS. It has been published under an open source license in 2019. Recently, GAMS joined forces with experienced TIMES users to develop an open-source TIMES/MIRO App that serves as a frontend to the TIMES model. This was made possible by new features in GAMS MIRO 1.1
GAMS was attending the OR2019 in Dresden. But I don’t want to report about the conference itself at this point. We gave a workshop, held talks, and had a booth - the usual. However, in Dresden, I was asked not for the first time what GAMS actually does at such a conference.
GAMS staff Michael Bussieck and Robin Schuchmann attended the meeting Mathematical Optimization for the Hidden Champions of the GOR working group Real World Optimization at the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) in Pforzheim, Germany. The focus of the 2-day event was on optimization-based analysis and decision making, especially from the perspective of small businesses in the manufacturing industry.
