An approach is proposed that will easily enable operational researchers and systems managers to obtain an optimized response of the generated model. The Web-based Optimization System provides an environment for modeling and solving a model in mathemathical programming. The environment uses a distributed architecture that turned the system extensible and very independent of platforms and the fabricants of solvers, also being able itself to connect proper optimization softwares. The study demonstrates the importance that the Internet has potential to be an important component in optimization systems.
