I would agree to trying to solve it with eplex, but you should be
careful about what LP/MIP solver you use when you formulate it as an IP
problem. In my experience, CLP/CBC as the external LP solver works ok if
you have a pure LP formulation. However, I always ran into trouble when
trying to use CLP/CBC for MIP problems. It just didn't scale. As an
academic user, you should have access to CPLEX. In that case, there
shouldn't be any problem. If you have to use CLP/CBC (which comes as
default LP solver with ECLiPSe), try to formulate the problem as a pure
LP problem (using SOS1 sets).

Cheers,
