Unformatted text preview: osen r, the demand will become known to you.
This means that you will ﬁnd out which of the K demand vectors is the true demand. Once you
111 know this, you must choose the quantities to be manufactured. (In other words, you must order
the raw materials before the product demand is known; but you can choose the mix of products to
manufacture after you have learned the true product demand.) The objective is to maximize the
(a) Explain how to formulate each of these problems as a convex optimization problem. Clearly
state what the variables are in the problem, what the constraints are, and describe the roles
of any auxiliary variables or constraints you introduce.
(b) Carry out the methods from part (a) on the problem instance with numerical data given in
planning_data.m. This ﬁle will deﬁne A, D, K, c, m, n, p and pi. The K columns of D are the
possible demand vectors. For both of the problems described above, give the optimal value of
r, and the expected proﬁt.
