Linear Programming Problem (LPP)

2.1  INTRODUCTION

Linear Programming constitutes a set of Mathematical Methods specially designed for the Modelling and solution of certain kinds of constrained optimization problems.

The Mathematical presentation of a Linear Programming Problem in the form of a linear objective function and one or more linear constraints with equations or inequations constitutes a Linear Programming Problem. The process leading to the construction of this model is referred to as the Model Building or Mathematical formulation of Business problem given. In this model, a linear objective function of the decision variables are maximized/minimized subject to a set of linear constraints with equations/inequations. This technique ...
