A retail store in Des Moines, Iowa, receives shipments of a particular product from Kansas City and Minneapolis. Let...
x= units of products received from Kansas City........... y = products received from Minneapolis
i. write an expression for the total units of product received by the retail store in Des Moines.
ii. Shipments from KC cost $0.20 per unit and shipments from Minneapolis $0.25 per unit. Develop an objective function representing the total cost of shipments to Des moines.
iii. Assuming the monthly demand at the retail store is 5,000 units; develop a constraint that requires 5000 units to be shipped to Des Moines.
vi. No more than 4000 units can be shipped from KC and no more than 3000 units can be shipped from Minneapolis a month. Develop constraints to model this situation.
v. Of course negative amounts cannot be shipped. Combine the objective function and constraints developed to state a mathematical model for satisfying the demand at the Des Moines retail store at minimum cost
