Abstract : This research focuses on applying mixed integer programming (MIP) to selected problems of the U.S. Army. Many strategic planning problems can be formulated as MIPs but frequently they contain a huge number of variables and/or constraints that make the models intractable for currently available MIP solvers. This research has two distinct aspects: (1) developing and implementing new methodology for solving large scale MIPs; and, (2) working with the Concepts Analysis Agency on the solution of specific large scale MIPs and on technology transfer.
