Linear Programming Models

Linear programming models are found in almost every field of business (and beyond!). The next sections go through a number of problems, showing how to model them by the appropriate choice of decision variables, objective, and constraints. In all cases, we will describe the problem and give a model. Solver worksheets for each of these is available on the web page.
