Unit 5 Operations Management Assignment Help

Unit 5 Operations Management Assignment Help Assess how linear programming adds value to a given production process. Linear programming is a tool, the application of which, to a set of variables, is expected to optimize the resources under a define set of constraints. This essentially means that linear programming helps to ascertain the optimum resources that would be needed to produce a certain output when there are certain limitations to the transformation process (from input to output). In a production process, the inputs will be the human resources available, the quantity of raw materials available (Graves, 1999). The limitations will be on the number of hours the machine can be operational, the limit on the efficiency of the work force, the availability of the raw material (that can impact the ideal state of the machine and the workforce), the output received in an hour or a day from the machine. Given a set of inputs, a set of constraints (as mentioned above), what would be the optimum value of the output that can be derived. A set of constraints in the transformation system become very complex to handle and analyse in order to determine the optimized value of output. Application of linear procedural programming helps in simplifying the process, identifying...
