Assumptions For Solving A Lp Problem

The application of LP makes use of the following assumptions:

(a)             Linearity. The objective function and each constraint is linear.

(b)             Certain and Constant. It means that the number of resources available and production requirements are known exactly and remain constant.

(c)             Non-negative variables. The values of decision variables are non-negative and represent real life solutions. Negative values of physical goods or products are impossible. Production of minus 10 refrigerators is meaningless.
