<strong>News Flash: Tabu Search on Clusters of Machines!</strong> Deep in the OpenTS labs, work is
moving along on an application for analysts to run their
pre-existing OpenTS tabu searches on clusters of Java machines!

calls for beta testing, sign up on the COIN announcements mailing list (very low volume)

        <p>
          OpenTS is a java tabu search framework that helps you implement the popular
          tabu search meta-heuristic in a well-defined, object-oriented design.
          Among the key advantages of this framework:
        </p>
        <p>
          <ul>
            <li>
              <b>Works with any problem type.</b>
              You can solve vehicle routing problems, assignment problems, or your
              favorite packing problem. OpenTS makes no assumptions about the type
              of problem you may solve.
            </li>
<p></p>
            <li>
              <b>Offloads repetitive tabu search functions.</b>
              You can define your problem and your ideal tabu search and
              leave the grunt work to OpenTS.
            </li>
<p></p>
            <li>
              <b>Logically organizes your tabu search.</b>
              You can better explain and understand your tabu search when
              it follows the well-structured design of the OpenTS framework.
            </li>
<p></p>
            <li>
              <b>Exploits modern computer technology.</b>
              You can take advantage of object-oriented programming and the
              cross-platform Java language including the ability to use
              multi-processor computers and deliver applications over the Internet.
            </li>
<p></p>
            <li>
              <b>Integrates goal programming.</b>
              You can evaluate solutions in more than one dimension and compare
              solutions first by comparing the most important value, then the second,
              the third and so on.
            </li>
          </ul>
