### Linear Programming

The development of linear programming 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. Linear programming uses a mathematical model to describe the problem of concern. Linear programming involves the planning of activities to obtain an optimal result, i.e., a result that reaches the specified goal best (according to the mathematical...

### Linear Programming Concept Paper

Linear Programming Concept Paper There are two types of linear programming: 1. Linear Programming- involves no more than 2 variables, linear programming problems can be structured to minimize costs as well as maximize profits. Due to the increasing complexity of business organizations, the role of the management executive as a decision maker is becoming more and more difficult. Linear programming is a useful technique to solve such problems. The necessary condition is that the data must be...

### The Navy Linear Programming Application

Linear Programming Application Transportation Problem The Navy has 9,000 pounds of material in Albany, Georgia that it wishes to ship to three installations: San Diego, Norfolk, and Pensacola. They require 4,000, 2,500, and 2,500 pounds, respectively. Government regulations require equal distribution of shipping among the three carriers. The shipping costs per pound for truck, railroad, and airplane transit are shown below. Formulate and solve a linear program to determine the shipping...

### Linear Programming and Capacity

outsourcing to keep up. Currently, we outsource only coarse and medium-sized yarn, but we believe that it would be more efficient to look at outsourcing all types. There are so many potential suppliers and constraints to consider that we constructed a linear programming model to identify our best option and check our solution's sensitivity to changes in our situation. We've analyzed our potential suppliers for each gauge, taking into account their capacity, cost of production for each plant, and transportation...
