The mathematical points of interest and the explicit techniques used to manufacture and investigate these models can be very modern and are tended to. Here we present an overview of the integration of constraint programming (CP) and operations research (OR) to solve combinatorial optimization problems. We interpret CP and OR as relying on a common primal-dual solution approach that provides the basis for integration using four main strategies. The first strategy tightly interweaves propagation from CP and relaxation from OR in a single solver. The second applies OR techniques to domain filtering in CP. The third decomposes the problem into a portion solved by CP and a portion solved by OR, using CP-based column generation or logic-based Benders decomposition. The fourth uses relaxed decision diagrams developed for CP propagation to help solve dynamic programming models in OR. The paper cites a significant fraction of the literature on CP/OR integration and concludes with future perspectives.
