Further, the constraint for the ith resource, and hence for any resource, has only linear terms. The complete linear program is summarized as Subject to: Xt ~ 0, X2 ~ 0, X3 ~ 0, ... , X 11 ~ 0. A general linear programming problem allows either maxumzation or minimization of the objective and permits the relationship between the left-hand and right-hand sides of the constraints to be of any form, less than or equal to, greater than or equal to, or simply equal to. The general statement of the linear programming problem also places all linear terms on the left-hand side and all constant (unmultiplied) terms on the right-hand side of the relational indicator.

Up to now, we have been using the terms systems and systems analysis without any sort of definition, although we have attempted to operate with an intuitive feel for the terms. Before going on to examples of systems analysis applications, it is appropriate to offer some definition of the term systems analysis, so that the examples can be viewed in the context of our definition. '' By this we mean that we are investigating the behavior of a system, typically by choosing various options for the control or management of the system.

May not yet be fully clear; clarity should come when the simplex solution procedure of linear programming is ultimately understood. We next provide a description of typical and important members of the broad array of applications of our automated form of systems analysis----of optimization applications. C APPLICATIONS OF LINEAR PROGRAMMING To provide you with an idea of how widely utilized linear programming and its derivative types of optimization are, we describe a number of settings in the public sector, in industry, and in business where linear programming and allied methods have been put to use.
