Management Science

Management Science vocab

linear programming problem solving approach developed for situations involving max or min of a linear function
decision analysis used to determine optimal strategies in situations involving several decision alternatives
analog model does not have a physical appearance similar to real object or situation it represents
objective function mathematical expression that describes the problem's objective
decision variable controllable input
optimal solution specific decision-variable value or values that provide the "Best" output for the model
infeasible solution decision alternative that does not satisfy one or more constraints
breakeven point total revenue equals total cost
constraint equation that rules out certain combinations of decision variables as feasible solutions
sensitivity analysis study of how changes in the coefficients of a linear programming problem affect the optimal solution
dual price improvement in the value of the objective function per unit increase in the right-hand side of a constraint
reduced cost amount by which an objective function coefficient would have to improve before it would be possible for the corresponding variable to assume a positive value in the optimal solution
slack added to left-hand side of a less-than constraint to covert it to an equality (unused resource)
surplus subtracted from left-hand side of a greater-than constraint to convert it to an equality (amount above required minimum)
extreme point feasible solution points occurring at the corners of the feasible region

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
