The Free AIMMS Community Edition is an unrestricted AIMMS Developer license for anyone to use AIMMS at no charge. You can use our modeling environment with its friendly IDE and all the extensive capabilities for model diagnostics, data connectivity, web application building and visualization, advanced algorithmic capabilities, data and case management features, and more.

Open source solvers CBC and IPOPT included

Compared to the commercial AIMMS Developer License and the Free AIMMS Academic License, the AIMMS Community Edition only includes access to the open source solvers CBC (for linear and mixed-integer problems), and IPOPT (for nonlinear problems), as well as the AOA solver for (mixed-integer nonlinear problems). This means you can use the AIMMS Community Edition to solve any linear, mixed-integer or nonlinear problem, although the performance will, in general, not be comparable to the commercial solvers that come with commercial and academic AIMMS licenses. To incorporate data uncertainty in your models, you can use the included options for Scenario Analysis and Stochastic Programming.

Qualified for the free Academic License?

If you are working or studying at an academic institution, you may prefer to request our Free AIMMS Academic License, which includes unrestricted free access to world-class commercial solvers such as CPLEX, CP Optimizer, CONOPT, and ODH-CPLEX, instead of the open source solvers offered through the AIMMS Community Edition.
