Integer Programming Problems Many of the LPP requires that the solution be integers.  For example, if the problem is to  estimate the maximum profit for a manufacture that produces radios, TVs, and DVDs.  The problem requires you to find how many of each product should be produced weekly  in order to maximize the company’s profit.  Since it is not practical to produce half a TV  or radio or DVD, the analysis is added with additional constraints that require the  solution contains only integer numbers of decision variables. The most recognized method to solve an integer linear programming problem (ILLP) is  the Branch-and-Bound (B&B) algorithm.  This content is included in Chapter 9 of the  text book.  Please read the text and practice the problems. Even if you do not learn anything further, you should be able to solve a simple ILLP  now.  For example, Example 9.2-1 is as follows:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
