Dynamic programming is applied to the problem of finding an optimal sampling strategy for a work environment in which employees are exposed to hazardous substances. The level of concentration is modeled as a stochastic process. Some numerical examples are given where the concentration level is assumed to be a Markov chain, and optimal decisions and costs are computed. Author
