Specifically, Swoosh management wants Product 1 to capture 25% of its market and Product 2 to capture 20% of its market. Three advertising campaigns are being planned to achieve to try and achieve these market shares. The first is targeted directly on the first product. The second targets the second product, and the third is intended to enhance the general reputation of the company and its products. Letting x 1 , x 2 , and x 3 be the amount of money (in millions of dollars) allocated to each campaign, management estimates that the resulting market shares can be expressed (in percentages) as Market Share for Product 1: . 5 x 1 + 0 . 2 x 3 (1) Market Share for Product 2: . 3 x 2 + 0 . 2 x 3 . (2) A total of $55M is available for the three advertising campaigns, but management wants at least $10M devoted to the third campaign. 1.1 Problem Formulate a linear program that will determine the proper allocation of money to advertising cam paigns. Answer: minimize x 1 + x 2 + x 3 subject to x 1 + x 2 + x 3 55 . 5 x 1 + 0 . 2 x 3 25 . 3 x 2 + 0 . 2 x 3 20 x 1 x 2 x 3 10 1.2 Problem Build your model from Problem 1.1 in the Mosel modeling language and solve it. What is the result of solving the instance? Answer: A Mosel model for this is given here: Problem 1 Page 1 IE426 Problem Set #3Answers Prof Jeff Linderoth !$Id: swoosh1.mos,v 1.1 20061022 12:13:14 jeff Exp $ ! Model: swoosh1 !
