Errors in the problem set-up

To aid in spotting errors in the input data and to see if the cost function and constraint functions are being computed correctly, all starting values are written to the report file at the start of a run. If a problem is being solved for the first time, it may be useful to make a run which prints the input data and then stops.

To print input data and stop

1.    Choose System > Optimization Properties.

2.    In Max Optimization Steps, enter 1.

3.    Activate Perform Optimization.

4.    Click OK, or press ENTER.

5.    From the toolbar, click the   toolbar button.

The report file, VSMGRG2.TXT, can now be viewed and verified.
