    Victoriano (1990) gave the following insights into linear programming:

    Linear Programming can either be minimization or maximization. A minimization or maximization problem can be classified as linear programming if it has the following properties:

    1. The objective of the decision-maker must either be to maximize or to minimize.
    2. The actions of the decision-maker must be constrained ...
