I use this code in the cplex and don't know why some decision variables don't get value, I attach my code below. I don't know my model is wrong or my code? I haven't error in the code but have some conflicts.

  • $\begingroup$ are you sure the model is feasible ? Perhaps include the log in your question. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ it looks like it is infeasible (there are conflicting constraints). What is in the Conflicts tab ? $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


your model is not feasible and that is why you get no solution.

if you comment

//forall(i in cD,j in DI,t in T:t==2, f in F)cb10:recievetime[i][t]+(time[i][j]+servicetime[j][t])*K[i][j][f]-Tmax*(1-K[i][j][f])<=recievetime[j][t];

then you ll get some conflicts and relaxations like

72  [0,Infinity]    [-6,Infinity]   delta[1][2]
72  [0,Infinity]    [-10,Infinity]  delta[2][2]
72  [0,Infinity]    [-5,Infinity]   delta[3][2]

and a relaxed solution in the problem browser
