FDS has built several Linear Programming based optimization algorithms. These were deployed effectively in following situations:
Optimizing nutrient content in animal feed : This involved maximizing nutrient content of animal feed mix, given availability of raw materials and their costs. Certain nutritional constraints were also imposed. The ad objective was to adhere to cost, raw material availability and other constraints and yet ensure a high level of nutrient content in animal diet.Product Mix Optimization : The objective was to arrive at a product mix for a Bearing manufacturer so as to maximize contribution and yet adhere to capacity, material and demand constraints.
