Unformatted text preview: We will look into in-house program development in greater detail in the next few sections. Interferences Another aspect we looked into was how the structuring of personnel to training programs would change if some constraints were removed, particularly the interference constraints. For example, if program 1 and program 2 no longer interfered, would the same programs still be used and would the optimal solution change at all? We experimented by removing all the program interference constraints. The new total cost derived from the optimal feasible solution was $59435, which is $11145 or 15.8% cheaper compared with the original cost of $70580. Therefore, we highly recommend you to try and reduce the constraints of interferences between programs....
