The linear programming analysis of the firm is based upon the following assumptions. (1) The decision-making body is faced with certain constraints or resource restrictions. They may be credit, raw material and space constraints on its activities. Types of constraints, in fact, depend upon the nature of problem. Linear programming is a mathematical technique which permits determination of the best use of available resources. To give example the application of linear programming technique to the problem of maximizing the contribution margin, assume that a small machine shop manufactures two models, standard and deluxe.
