The message Solver has found a solution appears in the Solver Results dialog box, as shown above. (Click on the image to see the full size). Now we click Responses in the Reports list to generate a response report and click OK to keep the optimal solution values in cells B4: E4.
You can generate three types of reports with Solver. Each contains information on how the solution was obtained. Each report is created on a separate worksheet.
Load the Solver add-in in Excel
- In Excel 2010 and later, go to File> Options.
- Click Add-Ins, then select Excel Add-Ins from the Manage box.
- Click Go.
- Select the Solver Add-in check box in the Available Add-ins box, and then click OK.
- Once the solver add-in is loaded, the solver command is available in the Analysis group of the Data tab.
Define and solve a problem
- On the Data tab, in the Analysis group, click Solver.
- In the Set Destination box, enter a cell reference or name for the destination cell.
- Do one of the following:
- Enter the restrictions you want to apply by doing the following in the Restriction Subject field:
- Click Solve and do one of the following:
To tell Excel Solver which cells in the worksheet represent decision variables, constraints, and objective functions, you click the Solver button on the Excel tab or the Premium Solver button on the Add-ins tab that displays the Solver Parameters dialog box.

Creating Scenario Reports
Once the solver has found a solution, a sensitivity report can be generated. 1. Before clicking OK, select Sensitivity in the Reports section. Below you will find the optimal solution and the sensitivity ratio.
The response report, available when a solution is found, provides basic information about the decision variables and constraints of the model. It also provides a quick way to find out which constraints are binding or equivalent in the solution and which ones are loose.
To use detection errors in Excel, select the formula cell that contains the error. Click the Problem Detection drop-down menu in the Formula Review button on the Formulas tab of the ribbon. Then select the Plot Error command from the drop-down menu to draw arrows over the cells that caused the error.
The Lagrange multiplier shows how the objective function would change if the constraint constant were increased by 1.
view information about the report. The first part of a solver report - displays information about the report. The Group and Ungroup commands are located in the Structure group of the Data tab.
Optimization with Excel Solver
Linear programming problem and its mathematical formulation. Linear programming problems (LPP) provide the method for finding such an optimized function with / or values that would optimize the required function accordingly.
The linear programming solver (LP) of the OPTMODEL method allows you to solve linear programming problems. The label has a linear standard program. real. is the vector of the decision variable. it is the matrix of limits.
The linear programming model is an algebraic description of the objective to be minimized and the constraints to which the variables must adhere. The variables are the currents in each arc noted from x1 to x17. The problem with network performance is how to minimize the overall cost while respecting the performance of each node.
