Claims company processes insurance claims, their perm operators can process 16 claims/day and temp process 12/day and the average for the company is at least 450/day. They want to limit claims error to 25 per day total, and the perm generate .5 errors/day and temp generate 1.4 error per day. The perm operators are paid $465/day and temp/$42/day. Need to determine the number of permanent and temp operators to hire to minimize costs:
1. Need to formulate a linear programming model for this problem
2. use graphical analysis to solve this model.

Solution Summary

graphical analysis to linear programming is provided in details.
