Problem. Gomoryco processes crude oil into aviation fuel and heating oil. It costs
barrels of crude oil, which is then distilled and yields
barrels of aviation fuel and
barrels of heating oil.
Output from the distillation may be sold directly or processed in the catalytic cracker. If sold a er distillation
without further processing, aviation fuel sells for
barrels, and heating oil sells for
barrels. It takes hour to process
barrels of aviation fuel in the catalytic cracker, and these
can be sold for
. It takes minutes to process
barrels of heating oil in the cracker, and these
barrels can be sold for
. Each day, at most ,
barrels of crude oil can be purchased, and hours of
cracker time are available. Formulate a linear program that maximizes Gomoryco’s pro ts. ...
