worked hours. These are entered within the model in order to ensure that a scheduling system does not schedule a nurse more hours than they can work. Constraints impose restrictions within the model in order to ensure the correct decisions are produces from the model. Constraints can also be logical and economic restrictions all depending on the type of business ( Winston & Albright, 2016). Feasible solution is a set of values for a decision variable that satisfies all of the constraints in a problem. Feasible region is the set of all feasible solutions that satisfy the constraints of a problem. The LP model can produce more than one feasible solution from the variables inputted or other variables, these solutions are called feasible region ( Winston & Albright, 2016).

BIAM400 WEEK 2 3 Optimal solution is a feasible solution where the objective reaches its maximum or minimum value. An example of this would be the most profit or the least cost. Sensitivity analysis determines how different values of a variable affect a particular dependent variable in a given set. Sensitivity analysis can also be referred to “what-if” analysis

    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.
