SAS/OR 9.3 adds a variety of new and enhanced operations research capabilities. This paper surveys these added capabilities, highlighting their advantages and benefits. In optimization, new nonlinear and quadratic solvers provide improved performance, and a multistart algorithm for nonlinear solvers enables you to search more effectively for globally optimal solutions to difficult problems. SAS ® Simulation Studio adds support for 64-bit Windows environments and enhances graphical plots and icons, model editing and viewing, and distribution fitting with JMP ® software. The CLP procedure enhances its activity-scheduling capabilities and adds support for a linear objective function, providing an alternate means of optimization
