Prof. Roh is selling copies of the latest Justin Bieber CD. There are 3 suppliers (S1,S2,S3) that provide the plastic to make the CDs. Each sup-plier can supply the following amounts at the following prices:
Prof. Roh is selling copies of the latest Justin Bieber CD.
There are 3 suppliers (S1,S2,S3) that provide the plastic to make the CDs. Each sup-plier can supply the following amounts at the following prices:
|Supplier||max g available||price/g (in cents)|
Prof. Roh has contracted out 2 plants (P1,P2) that make the CDs. There is a cost to ship each g of plastic from each supplier to the plants (in cents):
Each plant has a maximum number of CDs they can produce and di erent costs:
|Max CDs can produce||3,000||5,000|
|Cost (in cents per CD)||11||13|
Each CD takes 4 g of plastic to make. The CDs are sold for 99 cents each. The CDs are so popular, they are selling o faster than they can make them.
Write a mathematical program to maximize the pro t for Prof. Roh.
You solution should include a clear explaination about your variables, your objective function, your constraints, and indicate whether the program is linear, integer, or non-linear. Feel free to include non-decision variables to make your solution easier to understand.
Note: Do NOT attempt to solve any of the mathematical programs you come up with
