IE 335 Operations Research - Optimization Solutions to Homework 2 Fall 2011 Problem 7 7.(a) We define the decision variables C and D such that C = number of chairs D = number of desks Now, we can define the optimization model as follows: maximize 40 D + 25 C subject to C 2 D 4 D + 3 C 20 C, D 0 and integer 7.(b) The optimal solution is C = 4 and D = 2 thus resulting in a profit of 40 × 2 + 25 × 4 = 180 7.(c) Yes. The optimal value contour intersects the feasible set at exactly one point, i.e. (4,2) and therefore we have a unique optimal solution. See the graph below. 7.(d) There are several ways to render this problem infeasible. One way would be to add the following constraint: D 3 Hence the model is infeasible since there are no points which satisfy all the constraints. 7.(e) For now, we assume fractional solutions are acceptable, and so we ignore any integrality constraints. Therefore, we can formulate and solve the model as a linear program (LP) instead of a mixed-integer-program (MIP). The GAMS LST file has been included which verifies the optimal values for the objective function, objval = 180, C = 4 and D = 2. 1

### What students are saying

• 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.
