Linear Programming is one of the most important tools for decision making in business. It helps us whenever we want to optimize a decision under a set of constraints, like maximizing profit under limited resources, minimizing cost while satisfying demand, or deciding on an optimal financial investment plan. Two types of mathematical programming models are studied: linear programs and integer linear programs. Also, problems that have an interpretation as flows in networks are discussed. Models have to be implemented in Excel. That's why tutorial meetings take place in computer rooms.
