answers to two decimal places.The optimal solution is to produceMWs in Los Angeles,MWs in Tulsa,andMWs in Seattle. The total distribution cost of this solution is \$.b.If at most 3900 MWs of power can be supplied by any one of the power plants, what is theoptimal solution? What is the annual increase in power distribution cost that results from adding theseconstraints to the original formulation? If required, round your answers to two decimal places.6293.941448.252912.152514227.38
The optimal solution is to produceMWs in Los Angeles,MWs in Tulsa,andMWs in Seattle. The total distribution cost of this solution is \$. The increasein cost associated with the additional constraints is \$.10-11The distribution system for the Herman Company consists of three plants, two warehouses, and fourcustomers. Plant capacities and shipping costs per unit (in \$) from each plant to each warehouse areas follows:Customer demand and shipping costs per unit (in \$) from each warehouse to each customer are asfollows:a.Choose the correct network representation of this problem.ii39002854.3439002626938.10112710.72
b.Formulate a linear programming model of the problem. For subtractive or negative numbers use aminus sign even if there is a + sign before the blank.c. Solve the linear program to determine the optimal shipping plan.
Objective Function Value =11850
There is an excess capacity ofunits at Plant 3380-250=13010-13Sports of All Sorts produces, distributes, and sells high-quality skateboards. Its supply chain consists ofthree factories (located in Detroit, Los Angeles, and Austin)that produce skateboards. TheDetroit and Los Angeles facilities can produce 350 skateboards per week,Austin plant is larger and can produce up to 700 skateboards per week.Skateboards must be shipped from the factories toone of four distribution centers, or DCs(located in Iowa, Maryland, Idaho, and Arkansas). Each distribution center can process(repackage, mark for sale, and ship) atmost 500 skateboards per week.Skateboards are then shipped from the distribution centers to retailers. Sports of All Sorts supplies3major U.S. retailers: Just Sports, Sports ’N Stuff, and The Sports Dude.The weekly demands are200 skateboards at Just Sports,500 skateboards at Sports ’N Stuf,and650 skateboards at The Sports Dude.The following tables display the per-unit costs for shipping skateboards between the factories and DCsand for shipping between the DCs and the retailers.130
