## Solver

A Solver is a collective term for mathematical software, in the form of a stand-alone program or also a software library that solves a mathematical problem. The Solver requires problem descriptions in a generic form as a mathematical model and calculates corresponding solutions.

## Cloud computing

The computing time, to solve a problem, in this case the calculation of the ideal housing-in and housing-out planning can be very high, depending on the input parameters, and thus take several weeks or even months on a normal computer. SupplySolver distributes the calculations on dozens, in exceptional cases also hundreds of servers in the Cloud to achieve a result in a useful period of time. This also permits a large number of calculations to run parallel; you have no restrictions here at all as a user.
