    False it can be allowed

    Operations management often presents complex problems that can be modeled by linear functions. The mathematical technique of linear programming is instrumental in solving a wide range of operations management problems.
    Linear Program Structure

    Linear programming models consist of an objective function and the constraints on that function. A linear programming model takes the following form:

    Objective function:

    Z = a1X1 + a2X2 + ...
