The following problem is based on a problem in section 4 of the book “Model Building in Mathematical Programming”. I’ve modified some aspects of it but it’s similar in nature. In my previous post I went over a basic method for solving linear programming problems with the example of a water plant that made two products.

Problem Description

In this post I will talk about using the same idea for linear programming problems with multiple subproblems. In this case we’ll be looking at a company which has two factories…
