When formulating a linear programming problem constraint, strict inequality signs (i.e., less than < or, greater than >) are not allowed.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com May 20, 2020, 1:59 pm ad1c9bdddf
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:
Z = a1X1 + a2X2 + ...
This discusses the linear programming model
