1. Streamlined Interface
The all-new Evolver interface minimizes the need for nested dialogs. Most model definition and optimization settings can be controlled from their main dialogs.
2. Range Support
Evolver allows you to define constraints and adjustable cell minimums and maximums with cell ranges, greatly simplifying model definition.
3. Progress Watcher
During optimization, Evolver gives you two ways of monitoring your progress - the summary Evolver Progress dialog and the detailed Evolver Watcher showing real-time reports in tabbed format.
4. Original, Best, Last Updating
After optimization, Evolver can update your entire spreadsheet model with values generated for the original, best, and last solutions. This lets you quickly switch between different scenarios in your model.
5. Application Settings
Evolver Application Settings on the Utilities menu contains customizable defaults such as reports, stopping defaults, goal settings, runtime settings, and more.
