• 1. SIMPLEX METHOD
• 2. Simplex Method
• When decision variables are more than 2 , we always use Simplex Method
• Slack Variable : Variable added to a  constraint to convert it to an equation (=).
• A slack variable represents unused resources
• A slack variable contributes nothing to the objective function value.
• Surplus Variable : Variable subtracted from a  constraint to convert it to an equation (=).
• A surplus variable represents an excess above a constraint requirement level.
• Surplus variables contribute nothing to the calculated value of the objective function.
• 3. Cont….
• Basic Solution(BS) : This solution is obtained by setting any n variables (among m+n variables) equal to zero and solving for remaining m variables, provided the determinant of the coefficients of these variables is non-zero. Such m variables are called basic variables and remaining n zero valued variables are called non basic variables .
• Basic Feasible Solution(BFS) : It is a basic solution which also satisfies the non negativity restrictions.
• 4. Cont…..
• BFS are of two types:
• Degenerate BFS : If one or more basic variables are zero.
• Non-Degenerate BFS : All basic variables are non-zero.
• Optimal BFS : BFS which optimizes the objective function.
• 5. Example Max. Z = 13x 1 +11x 2 Subject to constraints: 4x 1 +5x 2 < 1500 5x 1 +3x 2 < 1575 x 1 +2x 2 < 420 x 1 , x 2 > 0
• 6. Solution :
• Step 1: Convert all the inequality constraints into equalities by the use of slack variables .
• Let S 1 , S 2 , S 3 be three slack variables.
• Introducing these slack variables into the inequality constraints and rewriting the objective function such that all variables are on the left-hand side of the equation. Model can rewritten as:
Z - 13x 1 -11x 2 = 0 Subject to constraints: 4x 1 +5x 2 + S 1 = 1500 5x 1 +3x 2 +S 2 = 1575 x 1 +2x 2 +S 3 = 420 x 1 , x 2 , S 1 , S 2 , S 3 > 0
• 7. Cont…
• Step II : Find the Initial BFS.
• One Feasible solution that satisfies all the constraints is: x 1 = 0, x 2 = 0, S 1 = 1500,
• S 2 = 1575, S 3 = 420 and Z=0.
• Now, S 1 , S 2 , S 3 are Basic variables.
• Step III : Set up an initial table as:
• 8. Cont… Step IV: a) Choose the most negative number from row A1(i.e Z row). Therefore, x 1 is a entering variable . b) Calculate Ratio = Sol col. / x 1 col. (x 1 > 0 ) c) Choose minimum Ratio.

• 27. Two Phase Method
• 28. Introduction LPP, in which constraints may also have > and = signs, we introduce a new type of variable , called the artificial variable . These variables are fictitious and cannot have any physical meaning. Two Phase Simplex Method is used to solve a problem in which some artificial variables are involved. The solution is obtained in two phases.
• 29. Example Min.. Z = 15/2 x 1 - 3x 2 Subject to constraints: 3x 1 - x 2 - x 3 > 3 x 1 - x 2 + x 3 > 2 x 1 , x 2 , x 3 > 0

• Phase I : Simplex method is applied to a specially constructed Auxiliary LPP leading to a final simplex table containing a BFS to the original problem.
• Step 1 : Assign a cost –1 to each artificial variable and a cost 0 to all other variables in the objective function.
• Step 2 : Construct the auxiliary LPP in which the new objective function Z * is to be maximized subject to the given set of constraints.
• 33. Cont… Max. Z * = -a 1 –a 2 Z * + a 1 + a 2 = 0 Subject to constraints: 3x 1 - x 2 - x 3 –S 1 + a 1 = 3 x 1 - x 2 + x 3 –S 2 + a 2 = 2 x 1 , x 2 , x 3 , S 1 , S 2 , a 1 , a 2 > 0 Auxiliary LPP is: Initial solution is a 1 = 3, a 2 = 2 and Z * = 0

• Step 3 : Solve the auxiliary problem by simplex method until either of the following three possibilities arise:
• Max Z * < 0 and at least one artificial variable appear in the optimum basis at a positive level. In this case given problem does not have any feasible solution.
• Max Z * = 0 and at least one artificial variable appear in the optimum basis at a zero level. In this case proceed to Phase II.
• Max Z * = 0 and no artificial variable appear in the optimum basis. In this case also proceed to Phase II.
• 35. Cont… This table is not feasible as a 1 and a 2 has non zero coefficients in Z * row. Therefore next step is to make the table feasible. 1 0 1 a 2 0 1 1 a 1 1 -1 0 x 3 2 -1 0 -1 1 0 a 2 3 0 -1 -1 3 0 a 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 Z * Sol. S 2 S 1 x 2 x 1 Z * Coefficients of: Basic Variable

• 39. Cont… Phase II : The artificial variables which are non basic at the end of Phase I are removed from the table and as well as from the objective function and constraints. Now assign the actual costs to the variables in the Objective function. That is, Simplex method is applied to the modified simplex table obtained at the Phase I. Again this table is not feasible as basic variable x 1 has a non zero coefficient in Z’ row. So make the table feasible. 1 0 0 x 3 3/4 -3/4 1/4 -1/2 0 0 x 3 5/4 -1/4 -1/4 -1/2 1 0 x 1 0 0 0 -3 15/2 1 Z’ Sol. S 2 S 1 x 2 x 1 Z’ Coefficients of: Basic Variable
