Graphical Insight into the Allowable Range

The two dashed lines that pass through the solid constraint boundary lines are the objective function lines when PD (the unit profit for doors) is at an endpoint of its allowable range, 0 ≤ PD≤ 750.

The 100 Percent Rule

The 100 Percent Rule for Simultaneous Changes in Objective Function Coefficients: If simultaneous changes are made in the coefficients of the objective function, calculate for each change the percentage of the allowable change (increase or decrease) for that coefficient to remain within its allowable range. If the sum of the percentage changes does not exceed 100 percent, the original optimal solution definitely will still be optimal. (If the sum does exceed 100 percent, then we cannot be sure.)

Graphical Insight into 100 Percent Rule

The estimates of the unit profits for doors and windows change to PD = $525 and PW = $350, which lies at the edge of what is allowed by the 100 percent rule.

Graphical Insight into 100 Percent Rule

When the estimates of the unit profits for doors and windows change to PD = $150 and PW = $250 (half their original values), the graphical method shows that the optimal solution still is (D, W) = (2, 6) even though the 100 percent rule says that the optimal solution might change.

The 100 Percent Rule

The 100 Percent Rule for Simultaneous Changes in Right-Hand Sides: The shadow prices remain valid for predicting the effect of simultaneously changing the right-hand sides of some of the functional constraints as long as the changes are not too large. To check whether the changes are small enough, calculate for each change the percentage of the allowable change (decrease or increase) for that right-hand side to remain within its allowable range. If the sum of the percentage changes does not exceed 100 percent, the shadow prices definitely will still be valid. (If the sum does exceed 100 percent, then we cannot be sure.)

A Production Problem

Weekly supply of raw materials:

8 Small Bricks

6 Large Bricks

Products:

Table

Profit = $20 / Table

Chair

Profit = $15 / Chair

© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003

Sensitivity Analysis Questions

- With the given weekly supply of raw materials and profit data, how many tables and chairs should be produced? What is the total weekly profit?
- What if one more large brick were available. How much would you be willing to pay for it?
- What if an additional two large bricks were available (to make a total of 9). How much would you be willing to pay for these two additional bricks?
- What if the profit per table were now $25. (Assume now there are only 6 large bricks again.) How many tables and chairs should now be produced?
- What if the profit per table were now $35. How many tables and chairs should now be produced?

100% Rule for Simultaneous Changesin the Objective Coefficients

For simultaneous changes in the objective coefficients, if the sum of the percentage changes does not exceed 100%, the original solution will still be optimal. (If it does exceed 100%, we cannot be sure—it may or may not change.)

Examples: (Does solution stay the same?)

Profit per Table = $24 & Profit per Chair = $13Profit per Table = $25 & Profit per Chair = $12Profit per Table = $28 & Profit per Chair = $18

100% Rule for Simultaneous Changesin the Right-Hand-Sides

For simultaneous changes in the right-hand-sides, if the sum of the percentage changes does not exceed 100%, the shadow prices will still be valid. (If it does exceed 100%, we cannot be sure—they may or may not be valid.)

Examples: (Are the shadow prices valid? If so, what’s the new total profit?)

Summary of Sensitivity Report for Changes in the Objective Function Coefficients

- Final Value
- The value of the decision variables (changing cells) in the optimal solution.
- Reduced Cost
- Increase in the objective function value per unit increase in the value of a zero-valued variable (for small increases)—may be interpreted as the shadow price for the nonnegativity constraint.
- Objective Coefficient
- The current value of the objective coefficient.
- Allowable Increase/Decrease
- Defines the range of the coefficients in the objective function for which the current solution (value of the decision variables or changing cells in the optimal solution) will not change.

Summary of Sensitivity Report for Changes in the Right-Hand-Sides

- Final Value
- The usage of the resource (or level of benefit achieved) in the optimal solution—the left-hand side of the constraint.
- Shadow Price
- The change in the value of the objective function per unit increase in the right-hand-side of the constraint (RHS): ∆Z = (Shadow Price)(∆RHS)(Note: only valid if change is within the allowable range—see below.)
- Constraint R.H. Side
- The current value of the right-hand-side of the constraint.
- Allowable Increase/Decrease
- Defines the range of values for the RHS for which the shadow price is valid and hence for which the new objective function value can be calculated. (NOT the range for which the current solution will not change.)
