Summary: In this chapter we describe, how Zimpl is used as an algebraic modeling language for mixed-integer linear programs (MIPs) at the Inform GmbH (Aachen, Germany). We firstly give an overview of Zimpl, thereby motivating the choice of Zimpl for modeling a production planning problem. Besides depicting the role of Zimpl during the development and training process of optimization software at Inform, we show explicitly how a basic model of a production planning problem, the Mlclsp, can be modeled with Zimpl, thereby demonstrating its ease-of-use and some of its features.
