number of researchers have investigated the use of Genetic Algorithms for solving complex optimisation problems of the type discussed here, but they do not support multiple search algorithms in the same tool [24]. SciRun [8], and its followon Uintah [9], are interactive tools that allow a user to...

Otherwise, an optimalsolutionhas been found. The current values of the basic variables are optimal. The optimal values of the nonbasic variables are all zero.
If any nonbasic variable's cj  zj value is 0, alternate optimalsolutions might exist. STOP.

The objective of this paper is to map the characteristics of advanced planning and
scheduling systems and to find out the (use) fulness of these systems. Therefore the
following problemhas been formulated:

Introduction
Rationale of the Study
Every problemhas a solution. In order to come up with a good
solution, the root of the problemhas to be determined. The scope of
the problem must be established well before making the first few steps
of the study. One has to get a...
converge to an optimalsolution. Unfortunately, not only can we not do that, we cannot even bound how far the solution is from optimal. Consider the following problem. The processor has two onehour time slots, at 9:00 A . M .and 10:00 A . M .(with reserve prices of $1 and $9, respectively), and...

each node is at most some constant k: we replace the left and right attributes by child 1 ; child 2 ; : : : ; child k . This scheme no longer works when the number of children of a node is unbounded, since we do not knowhow many attributes (arrays in the multiplearray representation) to allocate in...

To solve these combinatorial optimization problems, one often has to use approximate methods which return near optimalsolutions in a relatively short time. Algorithms of these types are called as heuristics and they often use...

Graphicalmethods provide visualization of how a solution for a linear programming
problem is obtained.
THE STEPS FOLLOWED IN SOLVING A LP PROBLEM ARE:
1. Express the objective function as equations and the constraints as inequalities.
2. Graph the...
solving an IP problem is no more difficult than solving its LP relaxation once by the simplex method, namely, when the optimalsolution to the latter problem turns out to satisfy the integer restriction of the IP problem. When this situation occurs, this solution must be optimal for the IP problem as...

After completing this chapter you should be able to:
identify a product which maximises the contribution per unit of scarce resource when there is only one scarce resource, and determine the optimum solution.
formulate an LP model to solve for the optimal product...

E.g. when an analytical approach leads to a very complex mathematical representation, it is surprising how often this occurs even with well known types of problems. Simulations can also give...
