Question: 1 the attack power of an aircraft command is evaluated...

Question details

1. The attack power of an aircraft command is evaluated as the sum of 3 factors as follows: Attack Power-Speed + Range + Armament A certain command consists of the following: Attack Power Ratin Aircraft Speed 4 Range Armamen Total 2 Crew Size 2 No. of Planes 36 Fighter Bomber 2 4 4 12 The total number of Air Force personnel available for making up the crews is 120. In a particular mission, it is required that the number of fighters not be less than the number of bombers, and that the total speed attack rating of the mission be at least 60 What is the proper assignment of aircraft, which will yield the maximum total attack power of this mission? (Assume that the proper mix of personnel is available.) a. Formulate the above problem as a linear program in 2 variables. b. Solve (a) by graphical means. Write down the optimal assignment of aircraft and the maximum attack power. Is the optimal solution unique?
