Abstract:

A fundamental unsolved problem in the programming area is one in which various activities have fixed charges e.g., set-up time charges if operating at a positive level. Properties of a general solution to this type problem are discussed in this paper. Under special circumstances it is shown that a fixed charge problem can be reduced to an ordinary linear programming problem.
