                 Multifunctional Output
Products : AMPL – COM Object
 • Object Oriented Component Library, based on
   Microsoft COM software technologies

 • Rationale:
     Software building blocks utilise the features of a programming
      language and AMPL individually as well as in combination

 • Benefits:
       The components are used to build powerful DSS
       They hide models from end users – when desiderable
       They make readily available the full AMPL features from
        any major programming language
