Unformatted text preview: : Operations Modeling, Fall 2009 Space Formulation of a mathematical model for the pet food distributor’s problem Decision variables: represent decisions by variables. Objective function: express the performance criterion in terms of the decision variables; should it be minimized of maximized? IOE 202: Operations Modeling, Fall 2009 Page 18 Space Formulation of a model for the pet food distributor’s – cont. Constraints: express all (explicit and implicit) constraints and restrictions on the values of the decision variables.
