Linear Programming (LP) Can Be
Used for Many Managerial Decisions:
• 1. Manufacturing applications
– Product mix
• 2. Marketing applications
– Media selection
– Marketing research
• 3. Finance application
– Portfolio selection
• 4. Transportation application and others
– Shipping & transportation
– Multiperiod scheduling
Dr. Chen, Decision Support Systems

For a particular application we begin with
the problem scenario and data, then:
1) Define the decision variables
2) Formulate the LP model using the
decision variables
•
•
Write the objective function equation
Write each of the constraint equations
3) Implement the model in Excel
4) Solve with Excel’s Solver

Manufacturing Applications
Product Mix Problem: Fifth Avenue Industries
• Produce 4 types of men's ties
• Use 3 materials (limited resources)
Decision: How many of each type of tie to
make per month?
Objective: Maximize profit

month
B1 = number of poly-cotton blend 1 ties to
make per month
B2 = number of poly-cotton blend 2 ties to

Profit Per Tie Calculation
Profit per tie =
(Selling price) – (material cost) –(labor cost)
Silk Tie
Profit = \$6.70 – (0.125 yds)(\$20/yd) - \$0.75
= \$3.45 per tie
