**Question**

Module 5 Discussion;**1** IMPORTATN - PLEASE UNDERSTAND AND APPLY THE FOLLOWING ****;Students are directed to select one (1) discussion question to respond to for their initial response.;For the initial response, students must select a question that has not been answered;however, if all questions have been answered, they are to choose the question with the last initial response;but must provide an original answer.;**2** IMPORTATN - Please be reminded of what is required;1) your discussion (worth 9pts).;2) 2 student replies (worth 3 pts, each).;3) please use your own words from information presented in course text.;Please use one of the following discussion questions to discuss. please try not to repeat question that another student may have already discussed.;unless, off course, all questions have been discussed.;===========================================================================;Module 5;1. Explain the difference between a balanced transportation model and an unbalanced transportation model. How does the fact that a model is balanced or unbalanced affect the constraints of the model?;2. Explain the difference in the approaches in solving balanced and unbalanced transportation problems.;3. What is the enumeration approach to solving assignment models? Is it a practical way to solve 5 row x 5 column models? Why?;4. What is the minimum-spanning tree model? What types of problems can be solved using this type of model?;5. What is the maximal-flow model? What types of problems can be solved using this type of model?;6. What is a shortest path model? What type of problem can be solved using this type of model?;7. What is a flow balance constraint? How is it implemented at each node in a network?;===========================================================================;Module 6 Discussion;**1** IMPORTATN - PLEASE UNDERSTAND AND APPLY THE FOLLOWING ****;Students are directed to select one (1) discussion question to respond to for their initial response.;For the initial response, students must select a question that has not been answered;however, if all questions have been answered, they are to choose the question with the last initial response;but must provide an original answer.;**2** IMPORTATN - Please be reminded of what is required;1) your discussion (worth 9pts).;2) 2 student replies (worth 3 pts, each).;3) please use your own words from information presented in course text.;Please use one of the following discussion questions to discuss. please try not to repeat question that another student may have already discussed.;unless, off course, all questions have been discussed.;===========================================================================;Module 6;1. Compare the similarities and differences of linear programming (LP) and goal programming (GP).;2. What is the difference between pure and mixed Integer Programming (IP) problems? Which do you think is most common, and why?;3. What is meant by satisficing, and why is the term often used in conjunction with Goal Programming?;4. What are deviation variables? How do they differ from decision variables in traditional LP problems?;5. If you were the president of the college and were employing GP to assist in decision- making, what might your goals be? What kinds of constraints would you include in your model?;6. What does it mean to rank goals in GP? How does this affect the problem?s solution?;7. Provide your own examples of problems where the objective is nonlinear and one or more constraints are nonlinear.;8. What are some of the questions that can be answered with project management?;9. What are the major differences between PERT and CPM?;10. What is an activity? What is an immediate predecessor?;11. Discuss what is meant by critical path analysis. What are critical path activities, and why are they important?
