Explain the usefulness of lp
You have to explain linear programming be used under conditions of certainty?
Problem- The production manager of a large Cincinnati manufacturing firm once made the statement, “I would like to use LP, but it’s a technique that operates under conditions of certainty. My plant doesn’t have that certainty; it’s a world of uncertainty. So LP can’t be used here.”
Part 1- Do you think this statement has any merit? Why or why not?
Part 2- Explain why the manager may have said it and then further substantiate his argument or compose a rebuttal.
You need to explain the usefulness of LP even under a degree of uncertainty.
