Abstract : The importance of mathematical models as tools in decision making has motivated increased interest in that theory and its implementation. This paper describes fundamental techniques of linear programming which have been combined to offer a microcomputer based optimization package. The package is machine portable and will accept input from files created by other programs. Thus the package affords the opportunity to build a mathematical programming system based on its ability to solve bounded variable linear sub-programs. Written in JRT PASCAL 3.0 and implemented on a portable, 8-bit microcomputer (KAYPRO-II), this package places the fundamental tool of optimization in the office, classroom and home. (Author)
