.16B2+0.50 B3+0.54B4+0B5
the objective in an optimization problem is represented mathematically by an
objective function, the objective function in Scottsville Textile Mill Scheduling
problem expresses the mathematical relationship between the decision variable(such
as the amount of the each fabric should be produced) in the model to determined the
maximize profit of the production. As the solve determined that the maximize profit is
\$ 62531.49, and the profit from make is equal to \$43137.47, profit from buy is equal
to \$ 19394.02.

The minimizing cost value is 93623.5.
Above solution shows that production quantity for all fabric types are same in Profit

maximization and Cost minimization model. therefore, both the profit maximization
and cost minimization models will provide the same optimal solution. However, the
coefficients of the objective function are different for the two model. In the cost
minimization model, the coefficients are costs per unit, therefore, the solutions allows
company to fill the order at a minimum cost of \$ 93623.5. on the other hands, in the
profit maximization model, the coefficients are profit contributions per unit from
Task 2: The MasterDebt Lockbox
(2.1) Formulate the problem:
First we must calculate the losses due to lost interest for each possible assignment.
Defining the decision variables:
If the central sends to Sacramento, then on average there will be 4* 45= 180 (in
\$1,000s) in process on any given day, interest rate of 15%, this corresponds to a
yearly loss of 27 (in \$1,000s) then We can calculate the losses for the other
possibilities in a similar fashion to get follow table.

(2.4) The total costs are 224,000 and MasterDebt should use Dallas for Central,
Midwest, Northwest, Southeast and Southwest while New York for Mid-Atlantic and
Northeast.
(2.5) The total costs are 227,500 when a maximum of four regions could be assigned
to any lockbox location and MaterDebt should use Sacramento for Midwest,
Northwest and Southwest while Atlanta for Central, Northeast, Southeast, MidAtlantic.
Task 3: Brief Report
The objectives of the assignment are to complete two problems with three tasks. We
have established a schedule since week 3 and made regular meeting time at three
times a week which was right after the class on Monday, Tuesday and the other one
was held during weekend with two hours each time discussions. Based on the
exercises and knowledge learnt from lectures and tutorials, we solved the problems
5

with Excel together during the meeting and discussed how to put them into the Word.
In conclusion, our group has been effective at collaborating on this assignment and
successful at developing a plan while each member has been following through with
their responsibilities.
