accept a solution 1 giving an hourly production of automobiles at 58 2 if the model were based upon average hourly production, and the production had the interpretation of production rates. At other times, however, fractional solutions are not realistic, and we must consider the optimization problem:
Investments manages funds for a number of companies and wealthy clients. The investment strategy is tailored to each client’s needs. For a new client, Innis has been authorised to invest up to $1.2 million in two investment funds: a stock fund and a money market fund. Each unit of the stock fund costs $50 and...
Microsoft Office Excel, you can use several different sets of values in one or more formulas to explore all the various results.
For example, you can do what-if analysis to build two budgets that each assumes a certain level of revenue. Or, you can specify a result that you want a formula to produce...
The terms operations research and management science are often used synonymously. When a distinction is drawn, management science generally implies a closer relationship to the problems of business management.
Operations research also closely relates to industrial engineering. Industrial...

is scheduled for Tuesday 3/5. Coverage will include material identified on the syllabus through 2/28. The exam will be comprised of two parts: (1) multiple choice questions (and possibly a few true/false), (2) short answers. The weight between parts I and II will likely be in the neighborhood of 50-50...

The technique has been applied widely in the areas of aviation, automotive engineering, environmental assessment and electromagnetics. In the past, we have produced tools...
In mathematical optimization, Dantzig's simplex algorithm (or simplex method) is a popular algorithm for linear programming.  The journal Computing in Science and Engineering listed it as one of the top 10 algorithms of the twentieth century.
The name of the algorithm is derived from...
if controlled, can help in promoting our educational goals such that they should be exploited rather than avoided. Although linear (i.e., waterfall) has been the most often used model in teaching, time constraints and an opportunity-driven learning process should make the concurrent model suitable for...

commodity increases as its price rises.
Giffen paradox is explained by the fact that if the poor rely heavily on basic commodities like bread or potatoes, when prices are low they might still have some disposable income for purchases of other items.
As bread or corn prices rise, these other purchases are no...

Solving linear programming problems: the Simplex Method (Chapter 4.1-4.8, 4.11-4.14, 6.2 )
Standard form of the LP-problem
• All main constraints are equations. • All variables are nonnegative. In general, the standard form of an LP-problem can be written in the following form:
algorithms, structural properties and lower bounds related to applications of linear programs in combinatorial optimization. The following Steiner tree problem is central: given a graph with a distinguished subset of required vertices, and costs for each edge, ﬁnd a minimum-cost subgraph that connects the...
Over the last decade, our society has become more and more dependent on Information Systems (IS), and increasingly dependent on highly distributed IS that operate in unbounded networks, such as the Internet. These systems hold the necessary data on which the...
