Python for Constraint Programming, a case study
In this talk we share our experience working on an optimisation problem for one of our clients. The problem we were asked to solve is a particular variant of the so-called job-shop problem and can be modelled as a Constraint Satisfaction Problem. We briefly describe our journey from understanding to modelling to the implementation of a Python-based solution. In particular we offer an introduction to the third-party library we used as a Constraint Programming solver and we provide some simple examples.
