Linear Programming is a mathematical technique useful for allocation of scarce or limited resources to several competing activities on the basis of given criterion of optimality.The usefulness of linear programming as a tool for optimal decision-making on resource allocation, is based on its applicability to many diversified decision problems. The effective use and application requires, as on its applicability to many diversified decision problems. The effective use and application requires, as a first step, the mathematical formulation of an LP model, when the problem is presented in words. Steps of linear programming model formulation are summarized as follows : STEP 1 : Identify the Decision Variables

a) Express
each constraint in words. For this you should first see whether the constraint is of the form >/ (at least as large as), of the form \< (no larger than) or of the form = (exactly equal to)

b) You should then verbally express the objective function

c) Steps (a) and (b) should then allow you to verbally identify the decision variables

If there are several decision alternatives available , then in order to identify the decision variables you need to ask yourself the question – what decisions must be made in order to optimize the objective function ?

Having accomplished step 1(a) through (c) decide the symbolic notation for the decision variables and specify units of measurement. Such specification of units of measurement would help in interpreting the final solution of the LP problem .

STEP 2 : Identify the Problem Data

For solving a problem, we need to identify the problem data so as to provide the actual values for the decision variables. For this,...

...LINEARPROGRAMMING
INTRODUCTION:
The term ‛programming′ means planning and it refers to a particular plan of action amongst several alternatives for maximizing profit or minimizing cost etc. Programmingproblems deal with determining optimal allocation of limited resources to meet the given objectives, such as cost, maximum profit, highest margin or least time, when resources have alternative uses.
The term...

[pic]Linearprogramming is very important in various fields of life especially in managerial decision making. The reason is that it helps the company in minimizing the costs and maximizing the profits. Through linearprogramming managers can calculate the prices and the sales units which can maximize the profits of the company. Therefore, there are various issues which the company incurs regarding their costs and prices...

...The development of linearprogramming has been ranked among the most important scientific advances of the mid 20th century. Its impact since the 1950’s has been extraordinary. Today it is a standard tool used by some companies (around 56%) of even moderate size. Linearprogramming uses a mathematical model to describe the problem of concern. Linearprogramming involves the planning of activities...
