Abstract
In this paper, firstly, application areas of Operations Research are introduced. Some computer tool-kits used to solve OR problems are outlined, together with some programming languages, which can be used to model and solve the optimization problems. Secondly, an optimization programming language-IBM ILOG OPL is presented. Background knowledge about a high level programming language, data structure in OOP and relational database will facilitate the process of learning due to its highly abstract syntax and semantics. The connection between background knowledge and OPL is illustrated in detail. Lastly, the typical problems that IBM ILOG OPL can solve are introduced. This paper highlights the language features of OPL, focuses on its powerful data processing capability and application in teaching of Operations Research.
