post-optimal analysis

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

When a computer program is used to solve a linear programming problem, the solution can provide further information, e.g. about any slack there is in the variables, or, the value attached to relaxing a constraint. Since these pieces of information are available only after the algorithm has produced the optimum solution, the general term post-optimal analysis is used to describe procedures to obtain them.
