Busm 360 Formulating Linear Programming Model Step 1. Determine decision Variables Step 2. Determine Criteria Function Step 3. Determine Constraints Example: Sporting Goods acquired a new facility. This new facility has 10,00 square feet of display area. Sporting Goods has four products considered for display: Product A costs $55, sells for $80 and requires 24 square feet per unit for storage. Product B costs $100, sells for $130, and requires 20 square feet for storage. Product C costs $200, sells for $295 and requires 36 square feet for storage. Product D costs $300, sells for $399 and requires 50 square feet for storage. At least 10 units of each product are required to be displayed. The budget is set at $600,000 to purchase the products. How man units of each product should be on display to maximize profit contribution? Step 1. There are 4 products & it must be determined how much of each to acquire. Let X Ae the quantity of A to purchase, XBthe quantity of B to purchase, XCthe quantity of C to purchase, and X the quantity of D to purchase. D Step 2. The objective is to maximize profit contribution, so determine the profit contribution from each product. Product A: costs $55 and sells for $80. The profit contribution is $25 per unit. Product B: costs $100 and sells for $130. The profit contribution is $30 per unit. Product C: costs $200 and sells for $295. The profit contribution is $95 per unit. Product D: costs $300 and sells for $399. The profit contribution is $99 per unit. The profit contribution is stated as this linear function: Z = 25X +A30 X + 9BX + 99XC D Step 3. The constraints are the amount of storage space and the policy requiring minimum quantities. State these as linear expressions: For storage space: 24X A 20 X + B6X + 50XC≤ 10,00D For the minimum of 10 units per product policy: X A 10, X ≥ B0, X ≥ 10C X ≥ 10 D Maximize Z = 25X + 30 X + 95X + 99X A B C D Subject to these constraints: 24X A 20 X + B6X + 50XC≤ 10,00D X A 10, XB≥ 10, X ≥ 10, C XD≥ 10
