Instructions

You can use CMake to build the project. Relevant variables are GUROBI_DIR (to specify the home directory of solver Gurobi) and CPLEX_DIR (to specify the home directory of solver Cplex).

mkdir -p build && cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DGUROBI_DIR=/opt/gurobi -DCPLEX_DIR=/opt/cplex ..
make -j4

Running ./elevator --help describes the possible options:

$ ./elevator --help

Solves the Vertical Farming Elevator Energy Minimisation Problem
Usage:
  elevator [OPTION...]

  -i, --instance arg     Path of the instance file
  -w, --warmstart arg    Path to the initial solution (MIP models only)
  -g, --greedyheur       Try to generate an initial solution with a simple 
                         greedy heuristic (MIP models only)
  -p, --cpheur           Try to generate an initial solution with a 
                         Constraint Programming heuristic (MIP models only)
  -m, --model arg        MIP/CP model to use
  -s, --savemodel        Save the model to file? (MIP models only)
  -c, --contrelax        Saves the variable values of the continuous 
                         reaxation (MIP models only)
  -d, --disablepresolve  Disables Gurobi's cuts and presolve (MIP models 
                         only)
  -v, --valid arg        Comma-separated list of valid inequalities to use 
                         (MIP models only)
  -n, --bbnodes arg      Maximum number of BB nodes to explore (MIP models 
                         only)
