The Corner point theorem : If the feasible region is bounded, then the objective function has both a maximum and a minimum value and each occur at one or more corner points. If the feasible region is unbounded ,the objective function may not have a m

M7-2 MODULE 7 • LINEAR PROGRAMMING: THE SIMPLEX METHOD M7.1 Introduction In Chapter 7 we looked at examples of linear programming (LP) problems that contained two decision variables. With only two variables it is possible to use a graphical approach.

linear programming formulation & graphical method Aim: To optimally utilize the scarce resources- e.g. money, man power, machinery etc. LP is the most popular and widely accepted deterministic technique of Mathematical programming.

Special Cases in Graphical Method Linear Programming : The first constraint 4x 1+ 3x 2 ≤ 24, written in a form of equation 4x 1+ 3x 2 = 24 Put x 1 =0, then x 2 = 8 Put x 2 =0, then x 1 = 6 The coordinates are (0, 8) and (6, 0) The second constraint x

Linear Programming: The Simplex Method Learning Objectives Students will be able to: 1. ... Substitution Rates Substitution rates are numbers in the body of

1.proporties of Linear programming Linearity implies that the LP must satisfy three basic properties: ... in the graphical method, the solution space is delineated by the half-space ... and in the simplex method the solution space is represented by m

Simplex Method|First Iteration If x 2 increases, obj goes up. How much can x 2 increase? Until w 4 decreases to zero. Do it. End result: x 2 >0 whereas w 4 = 0. That is, x 2 must become basic and w 4 must become nonbasic. Algebraically rearrange equa

5.2. The Simplex Method: Solving Maximum Problems in Standard Form205 Consider the following standard maximum-type linear programming problem. Maximize P= 3x + 4y subject to x+ 3y 30 2x+ y 20 x 0;y 0 Step 1 in the Simplex Algorithm - Insert Slack Var

Linear programming (LP) is used for solving all problems that can be represented by a system of linear equations. Graphical method is often limited to LP problems involving two or three decision variables and a limited number of constraints due to th

A linear programming problem with only two variables presents a simple case for which the solution can be obtained by using a rather elementary graphical method.
