I Is it optimal? If not, How far from optimal is it? Chapter 6: Duality and Sensitivity Analysis 4 Chapter 6: Duality and Sensitivity Analysis Introduction Introduction I Consider the following LP: maximize Z = 30 x 1 + 20 x 2 subject to x 1 + 2 x 2 6 (1) 2 x 1 + x 2 8 (2) x 2 2 (3) x 1 + x 2 1 (4) x 1 , x 2 I Here is a feasible solution: ( x 1 , x 2 ) = (2 , 1) with Z = 80. I Is it optimal? If not, How far from optimal is it? I We could answer by solving the LP using simplex. Is there another way? Chapter 6: Duality and Sensitivity Analysis 4 Chapter 6: Duality and Sensitivity Analysis Introduction Lower and Upper Bounds I Since (2 , 1) is a feasible solution with Z = 80, 80 is a lower bound on the optimal objective value. I Why? Chapter 6: Duality and Sensitivity Analysis 5 Chapter 6: Duality and Sensitivity Analysis Introduction Lower and Upper Bounds I Since (2 , 1) is a feasible solution with Z = 80, 80 is a lower bound on the optimal objective value. I Why? I ( 10 3 , 4 3 ) is also a feasible solution, with Z = 380 3 = 126 . 67, so 126.67 is also a LB. I What if I told you that 160 is an upper bound on the optimal objective value?

I Then ( 10 3 , 4 3 ) is no more than 160 126 . 67 = 33 . 33 units away from optimal....
