Linear programming for Burger Doodle




Question;The manager of a Burger Doodle franchise wants to determine how many sausage biscuits and ham biscuits to prepare each morning for breakfast. The two types of biscuits require the following resources.;Biscuit Labor (hr.) Sausage (lb) Ham (lb) Flour (lb);Sausage 0.010 0.10 ------- 0.04;Ham 0.024 ------- 0.15 0.04;The franchise has 6 hours of labor available each morning. The Manager has a contract with a local grocer for 30 pounds of sausage and 30 pounds of ham each morning. The manager also purchases 16 pounds of flour. The profit for a sausage biscuit is $0.60, the profit for a ham biscuit is $0.50. The manager wants to know the number of each type of biscuit to prepare each morning in order to maximize profit.;Part 1) Formulate a linear programming model for this problem.;Use (solver) in excel for the (answers, sensitivity and limits reports) as well.;Solve the linear programming model developed in the above problem for the Burger Doodle restaurant by using the computer.;a) Identify and explain the shadow prices for each of the resource constraints.;b) Which of the resource constraints profit the most and why?;c) Identify the sensitivity ranges for the profit of a sausage biscuit and the amount of sausage available. Explain the sensitivity ranges.
