Abstract:

Linear programming techniques for solving administrative and planning problems are discussed. The simplex method is advanced as the most practical way of solving the mathematical problem. The value of the IBM 701 calculator as a computational aid is explored. A petroleum blending problem is used to illustrate the power of linear programming as a tool for planning.
