Integer Programming

Slide2

Computationally speaking, we can partition problems into two categories.

Easy Problems and Hard ProblemsWe can say that easy problem ( or in some languages polynomial problems) are those problems with their solution time proportional to nk. Where n is the number of variables in the problem, and k is a constant, say 2, 3, 4 … Let’s assume that k = 2. Therefore, easy problems are those problems with their solution time proportional to n2. Where n is the number of variables in the problem.Difficult problems are those problems with their solution time proportional to kn, or in our case 2n.

Computational Complexity

Now

suppose we have an easy problem with n variables. Therefore, the solution time is proportional to n2 . We have solved this problem in 1 hour using a computer with 5 GHz CPU.Suppose we have a new computer with its processing capabilities 10000 times of a 5 GHz computer, and we have one century time. What is the size of the largest problem that we can solve with this revolutionary computer in one century (100 years and about 10000 hours per year).

Now supposed we have a hard problem with

n variables. Therefore, the solution time is proportional to 2n . We have solved this problem in one hour using a computer with 900 MHz CPU.Suppose we have a new computer with 900,000 MHz CPU, and we have one century time. What is the size of the largest problem that we can solve in one century using a 900, 000 MHz CPU.1 2n(10)10 2(n+x)Computational Complexity

Either project 1&2 or projects 3&4&5 are

selectedX1=X2X3=X4=X5X1+X3=1Suppose Y1 is our production of product 1 . Due to technical considerations, we want one of the following two constraints to be satisfied. If the other one is also satisfied it does not create any problem.If the other one is violated it does not create any problem. More Practice

Slide11

We can produce 3 products but due to managerial difficulties, we want to produce only two of them.

We can produce these products either in plant 1 or plant 2 but not in both. In other words, we should also decide whether we produce them in plant one or plant two.Other information are given below Required hrs Available hrs Product 1 Product 2 Product 3Plant 1 3 4 2 30Plant 2 4 6

Consider a linear program with the following set of constraints:

12x1 + 24x2 + 18x3 ≤ 2400 15x1 + 32x2 + 12x3 ≤ 1800 20x1 + 15x2 + 20x3 ≤ 2000 18x1 + 21x2 + 15

3 ≥ 1600 Suppose that meeting 3 out of 4 of these constraints is “good enough”.

Meeting a Subset of Constraints

Slide14

We want two of the following 4 constraints to be satisfied.

The other 2 are free, they may be automatically satisfied, but if they are not satisfied there is no problemy1 + y2  100y1 +2 y3  160y2 + y3  50y1 + y2 + y3  170

In general we want to satisfy k constraints out of n constraints

Slide16

We have 5 demand centers, referred to as 1, 2, 3, 4,5.

We plan to open one or more Distribution Centers (DC) to serve these markets. There are 5 candidate locations for these DCs, referred to as A, B, C, D, and E. Annual cost of meeting all demand of each market from a DC located in each candidate location is given below DC1 DC2 DC3 DC4 DC5 Market 1 1 5 18 13 17 Market 2 15 2 26 14 14Market 3 28 18 7 8 8Market 4 100 120 8 8 9Market 5 30 20 20 30 40Each DC can satisfy the demand of one, two, three, four, or five marketA Location Allocation Problem

Slide17

Depreciated initial investment and operating cost of a DC in location A, B, C, D, and E is 199, 177, 96, 148, 111.

The objective function is to minimize total cost (Investment &Operating and Distribution) of the system.Suppose we want to open only one DC. Where is the optimal location.Suppose we don't impose any constraint on the number of DCs. What is the optimal number of DCs.A Location Allocation Problem

Mercer Development is considering the potential of four different development projects. Each project would be completed in at most three years. The required cash outflow for each project is given in the table below, along with the net present value of each project to Mercer, and the cash that is available (from previous projects) each year.

The Shortest Route Problem

The shortest route between two pointsl ij : The length of the directed arc ij. l ij is a parameter, not a decision variable. It could be the length in term of distance or in terms of time or cost ( the same as c ij )

For those nodes which we are sure that we go from i to j we only have one directed arc from i to j. For those node which we are not sure that we go from i to j or from j to i,

we have

two directed arcs

, one from

i to j,

the other from

j to i.

We may have symmetric or asymmetric network

Find the shortest route of these two networks.

But for red bi-directional edges you are not allowed to define two decision variables.

Only one.

Solve the small problem.

Only using 5 variables

Slide34

Do not worry about the length of the arcs, we do not need to write the objective functions.

Note that we do not know whether we may go from node 2 to 3 or from 3 to 2. Now we want to formulate this problem as a shortest route. The ShR Problem : Binary Decision Variables 1

32

Slide35

To formulate the problem as a shortest route, you probably want to define a pair of decision variables for arcs 2-3 and 3-2, and then for example write the constraint on node 2 as follows

X23+X24 = X12 + X32 But you are not allowed to define two variables for 2-3 and 3-2. You should formulated the problem only using the following variablesX23 is a binary variable corresponding to the NON-DIRECTED edge between nodes 2 and 3. It is equal to 1 if arc 2-3 or 3-2 is on the shortest route and it is 0 otherwise.

The ShR Problem : Binary Decision Variables

Slide36

As usual we can have the following variables

X12 X13 X24 X34 each corresponding to a directed arcThe solution of (X12 = 1 , X23 = 1, X34 = 1 all other variables are 0) means that the shortest route is 1-2-3-4.The solution of (X13

= 1

, X32 = 1, X24 = 1 all other variables are 0) ) means that the shortest route is 1-3-2-4.The solution of (X13 = 1 , X34= 1 all other variables are 0) ) means that the shortest route is 1-3-4.

The ShR Problem : Smaller Number of Binary Variables

Slide37

Now you should formulate the shortest route problem using defining only one variable for each edge.

Your formulation should be general, not only for this example. How many variables do you need to formulate this problem? The ShR Problem : Smaller Number of Binary Variables

When are “non-integer” solutions okay?

Solution is naturally divisible Solution represents a rate Solution only for planning purposesWhen is rounding okay?Integer Programming

Slide40

Rounded solution may not be feasible

Rounded solution may not be close to optimal There can be many rounded solutionsExample:

Consider a problem with 30 variables that are non-integer in the LP solution. How many possible rounded solutions are there?

Suppose the Washington State legislature is trying to decide on locations at which to base search-and-rescue teams. The teams are expensive, and hence they would like as few as possible. However, since response time is critical, they would like every county to either have a team located in that county, or in an adjacent county. Where should the teams be located?
