Goal programming (GP) is one of the vital branches of multi-objective optimization, which thusly is a part of multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA). Goal programming (GP) is one of the best optimization techniques. It may be very well thought of as an expansion of linear programming or nonlinear programming to deal with various, typically clashing objective measures. Every one of these measures is given an (goal) esteem to be achieved. Unwanted deviations from this set of target esteems are then minimized in an achievement work.
