Linear programming is one of the most common #optimization techniques. It has a wide range of applications and is frequently used in operations research, industrial design, planning, and the list goes on. Alas, it is not as hyped as machine learning is (which is certainly a form of optimization itself), but is the go-to method for problems that can be formulated through decision variables that have linear relationships. This is a fast practical tutorial, I will perhaps cover the Simplex algorithm and the theory in a later post.Problem StatementJust to get an idea, we are going to solve a simple problem regarding production scheduling. Imagine that you work for a company that builds computers. A computer is a fairly complex product, and there are several factories that assemble them (...)
