Abstract: This article presents a concise review of the scientific–technical computing system Maple and its application potentials in Operations Research, systems modeling and optimization. The primary emphasis is placed on nonlinear optimization models that may involve complicated functions, and/or may have multiple – global and local – optima. We introduce the Global Optimization Toolbox to solve such models, and illustrate its use by numerical examples.

Keywords: advanced systems modeling and optimization; Maple; Global Optimization Toolbox; application examples.
