Course Module on Linear Programming: Definition and Graphical Solution


This module has two main objectives: to formally introduce Linear Programming, and to present the graphical solution of the 2-variable LP problem. The module is intended to be used as a regular lecture in an undergraduate introductory course to Operations Research, or a self-contained support lecture in an undergraduate/graduate course that requires a basic knowledge of linear programming. The background knowledge required for the module is elementary knowledge of analytical geometry and linear algebra. In particular, it is necessary that the student know how to solve a system of linear equations and the general equation of the straight line. The module is designed to make the students active participants in the lecture.s exercises. The module design is tailored for a class that has been divided into teams. The ideal size of the teams is three or four students. However, smaller or larger teams can also be accommodated without any changes to the module's structure.

Instructional Objectives

At the end of the lecture, each student should be able to:

  • Construct the 2D graphical solution of the LP problem
  • Interpret the 2D graphical solution of the LP problem
  • Explain the concepts of solution, feasible solution, feasible region, and corner point solution

  • Student Materials
