2. Learning Objectives • Describe the features of constrained optimization models. • Formulate LP models for computer solution. • Solve two-variable models using graphics. • Explain the nature of sensitivity analysis. • Solve LP models with Excel Add-in Solver and interpret the results. • Formulate a goal programming model.

3. Stereo Warehouse Let x = number of receivers to stock y = number of speakers to stock Maximize 50x + 20y gross profit Subject to 2x + 4y 400 floor space 100x + 50y 8000 budget x 60 sales limit x, y 0

Workforce-Planning ProblemLast National Drive-in Bank Let Tt= number of trainees hired at the beginning of period t for t = 1,2,3,4,5,6 At = number of tellers available at the beginning of period t for t = 1,2,3,4,5,6 Minimize subject to A1= 12 for t = 2,3,4,5,6 At , Tt 0 and integer for t = 1,2,3,4,5,6

9. Model in Standard Form Let s1 = square feet of floor space not used s2 = dollars of budget not allocated s3 = number of receivers that could have been sold Maximize Z = 50x + 20y subject to 2x + 4y + s1 = 400 (constraint 1) 100x + 50y + s2 = 8000 (constraint 2) x + s3 = 60 ( constraint 3) x, y, s1, s2, s3 0

13. Goal ProgrammingStereo Warehouse Example Let x = number of receivers to stock y = number of speakers to stock = amount by which profit falls short of \$99,999 = amount by which profit exceeds \$99,999 = amount by which floor space used falls short of 400 square feet = amount by which floor space used exceeds 400 square feet = amount by which budget falls short of \$8000 = amount by which budget exceeds \$8000 = amount by which sales of receivers fall short of 60 = amount by which sales of receivers exceed 60 = priority level with rank k Minimize subject to profit goal floor-space goal budget goal sales-limit goal

14. Topics for Discussion • How can the validity of LP models be evaluated? • Interpret the meaning of the opportunity cost for a nonbasic decision variable that did not appear in the LP solution. • Explain graphically what has happened when a degenerate solution occurs in an LP problem. • Is LP a special case of goal programming? Explain. • What are some limitations to the use of LP?
