Introduction
Linear ** optimization** is a mathematical method for determining a way to achieve the best outcome such as maximum profit or lowest cost in a given mathematical model for some list of requirements represented as linear relationships. Linear programming is a specific case of mathematical programming
The Primary Purpose of the present investigation is to develop an interactive spreadsheet tool to aid in determining a maximum return function in 401K plan. In this paper, we discuss how the...

Once an efficient portfolio with the desired combination of expected return and variance has been identified, the portfolio constituent weights should be determined. To do so, the mean-variance ** optimization** (MVO) process is used. We have used the Unconstrained MVF that places no constraints on portfolio constituent weights except that the weights sum to 1. Since, Black’s two-fund theorem states that the asset weights of any minimum-variance portfolio...

'Capex ** Optimization** Strategies: Operator Best Practices for Making the Most of 3G Network Capex,' a Telecom Insider Report by Researcher, presents a selection of 17 techniques for managing 3G networks in a capex-efficient way.
These techniques have resulted from the application of the MASI, PYR's proprietary framework for analyzing and optimizing capex, to the capex profiles of a wide variety of operators.
In this report, we explain each of these capex-effective techniques for managing networks...

Company A's re-proportioned formula is sold under a private label Brand Y. Contribution to profit with Brand Y is $30 per case. Company A's objective is to maximize the total contribution to profit. Three constraints limit the number of cases of Brand X and Brand Y that can be produced. Constraint 1: The available units of nutrient C (n) is 30. Constraint...
