The contractor has a number of construction projects underway and has committed the company to completion dates for each of them. Certain job items (activities) are common to the various projects and require the same inputs of labor and equipment. The activities occur on various dates throughout the time span from project start to project completion. However, the contractor does not have enough labor and equipment to work on these job items on the same day on all projects. Hence, the contractor wants to schedule (stagger) the specialized work forces and specialized equipment on the projects so that ideally no labor or equipment shortages exist on any day and so that each project is done on time.
C Applications of Linear Programming 11 vehicles that will drop off the needed amounts at multiple destinations as the vehicles traverse the prescribed route. These problems can be structured as linear integer programs. grammmg, exanune the optimal stocking of goods and suggest the release quan- tities of those goods through time to the distribution system. The siting of warehouses be~ween factories and markets has also been studied with linear integer programmmg, as has the siting of manufacturing plants, which may supply either warehouses or customers.
The contractor knows the unit cost (cost per-pound) to the company for each of the three components of concrete, and how much of each component that is available for the company to purchase. The amount of concrete of each type that the contractor can sell is limited but known. 6. Construction. A construction contractor employs a given force of skilled workers and has a limited set of specialized machinery. There are a number of categories of skilled workers, as well as a number of classes of specialized machinery.
