FindMinimum uses an adaptation of Powell's Method (while it does not
consider constraints.)  In addition to built-in functions such as
FindMinimum, Wolfram Research sells three third-party application packages
with optimization functionality.

Industrial Optimization includes several well known methods for quadratic
objective functions and linear constraints.
Global Optimization could also be used (docs are at
http://www.mathsource.com/Content/General/Demos/0209-753).
Operations Research is useful in linear and/ or discrete problems, as
related to OR.

All three packages are listed at http://www.wolfram.com/products/applications/.
