LP Solves Linear Optimization Problems

LP for Windows solves linear programming problems that have thousands of variables and constraints. Solutions are reported as lists of primal and dual values. Simplex problems are solved with Beale's correction for cycling. Assignment and transportation problems are solved with special-purpose algorithms included in the linear programming package. Transportation problems can be unbalanced.

The user only needs to supply coefficients in matrix form. In this way it is very easy to re-order variables and constraints to improve performance. Moreover, there is no need for tedious typing of constraints and variable names. Variable names are recorded as spreadsheet column headings.

All LP functions are implemented by selecting choices presented in dialog boxes. There is no need to write and compile computer programs. A detailed manual is supplied with the software. A picture of the main screen is attached. A student version is available. Read the manual for an in-depth description of the LP application.
