    The attached files provide a definition of the problem, especially the powerpoint slide.

    Given the information, I am trying to develop a linear programming model such that I maximize the number of possible bids given the limited resources of budgets and writers. Essentially, which of the 10 bids should I take on, given the limitations of availability and cost of writers.

    I am assuming all bids are released for bid at the same time and are due at the same time over a 4 week period.

    Please see attached files(s)

    NOTE: There are 1 worksheet in the Excel file

    I took into account the probability of the bid's success on the expected estimated profit

    I also assumed that the problem at hand is only for 4 weeks, hence the constraint I defined for the labor requirements.


    I have ten targets
    Project Project
    ($) Probability of Success Estimated
    Bid Cost ($) Allowed
    Labor ($) Estimated Project Profit ...

    Solution Summary

    A linear programming model to optimize a number of possible bids given budgets are examined.
