Unformatted text preview: applications? Explain why or why not using examples. Yes, linear program consists of a set of decision variables, the parameters, the objective function, and a set of constraints. In formulating a given decision problem in mathematical form, you should practice understanding the problem by carefully reading and re-reading the problem statement. objective function is set up to fulfill the decision-maker’s desire (objective), According to Arsham the constraints which shape the feasible region usually comes from the decision-maker’s environment putting some restrictions/conditions on achieving his/her objective. However, the way we approach the problem is the same for a wide variety of decision-making problems, and the size and complexity may differ. Taylor, B. W. III (2011).
