The most basic problem with which linear programming is concerned relates to a production situation where items of various kinds are to be made. Each of these different types of item needs different quantities of certain limited resources. The problem is to decide how many units of each kind of item to make, subject to constraints on the resources, in order to achieve some objective such as maximisation of profit or maximisation of revenue.
