A Methodology for Designing High Level Computer Input Systems for Mathematical Programming Models. Industrial and Systems Engineering Report Series No. J-78-16.
Jarvis, John J.; Papaconstadopoulos, Chris
Developed and demonstrated here is the design of interface systems for cost-effective communication of the user with the computerized operations research procedures. The concentration is in the area of interfacing methods for implementing the optimization techniques of mathematical programing. Emphasis is given to flexibility of accessing the algorithm, cost-effectiveness, and pedagogical or self-teaching aspects of the interface systems. Methods which take advantage of the characteristics of the input model, for soliciting, storing, and analyzing the input information, are investigated. Concepts in higher level interfacing systems are also explored. Linear programing is the vehicle for experimental development of interface systems. The results are applicable to other mathematical programing procedures. (Author/MP)
