Problem Statement Pg. 76 Problem 5 Each day, workers at the Gotham City Police Department work two 6-hour shift chosen from 12 a.m. to 6 a.m., 6 a.m. to 12 p.m., 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., and 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. The number of workers are needed during each shift are shown at table below. Workers whose two shifts are consecutive are paid $12 per hour; workers whose shifts are not consecutive are paid $18 per hour. Formulate an LP that can be used to minimize the cost of meeting the daily work-force demands of the Gotham City Police Department.

Formulation of Problem Decision Variables: X i = Number of workers whose two shifts are consecutive and start at shift I (Shift i=1,2,3,4) Y j = Number of workers whose two shifts are not consecutive and start at shift j (Shift j=1,2) X i ≥ 0 Y j ≥ 0

Formulation of Problem Objective Function: Minimize Z = 12(X 1 +X 2 +X 3 +X 4 ) + 18(Y 1 +Y 2 ) Shift 1Shift 2Shift 3Shift 4 X1X1 X1X1 X2X2 X2X2 X3X3 X3X3 X4X4 X4X4 Y1Y1 Y1Y1 Y2Y2 Y2Y Constraints: X 1 +X 4 +Y 1 =15 X 1 +X 2 +Y 2 =5 X 2 +X 3 +Y 1 =12 X 3 +X 4 +Y 2 =6

10
Sensitivity Analysis of O.F. The only possible SA that can be done to the O.F. Is the not consecutive shift 2 because it is the only variable that has an RC value. Therefore we changed the hourly rate from $18 to $6 based on RC=12

11
Sensitivity Analysis of O.F.

12
Although the Z min decreases we realize that it is not practical for the hourly wage to decrease by $12.

13
Sensitivity Analysis of RHS We choose to decrease the number of workers on shift 3 for a couple reasons: ◦ It has one of the largest SP (SP=9) ◦ More flexibility in the allowable range which will minimize our cost.
