Challenge #111: Make a Weekly Challenge Dream Team!

Asteroid

Ughh, I spent a lot of time trying to get it - Alteryx kept giving me some strange errors.

Then finally I disconnected Optimization tool and connected it again. And suddenly everything started to work :-)

 

Anyway, it was a good exercise to find out how to use Optimization tool

Highlighted

this was trickier than I had expected, but it was definitely cool to be able to solve a system of hundreds of equations by using the optimize tool. 

 

the tool is definitely not easy to configure, but having this as a reference (translating the equations to the tool inputs) may help!

 

:-)

My solution is pretty similar to many others...

 

Spoiler
I recently updated Alteryx Designer, so I haven't jumped through all of the IT hoops yet to get the predictive tools reinstalled. Therefore, I went with the heuristic approach! In this case, it yields the same results as the optimal solution.

Really great challenge to learn how to use the optimization tool!  I am glad others posted a link to the Fantasy Baseball example to be able to better understand what the inputs to the Optimization tool needed to be.  It was very helpful.

First time using the Optimization tool and definitely won't be the last!

My solution attached.

This challenge is very similar to the baseball player lineup one in the past, but simpler. 

Optimization tool rocks!
