Did you know that JMP has an LP Solver? Linear programming (LP) is a technique for optimising a function subject to a set of linear constraints. [See here for the Wiki description of linear programming].
The solver takes the form of a function called LPSolve. This can be quite tricky to use, so I wrote a front-end to make the functionality more accessible:
The method is traditionally associated with the field of Operational Research, but if there are any JMP users interested in it, let me know and I can get it posted on the file exchange.
I developed this front-end for my own personal interests. I wanted to explore the use of JMP for Data Envelopment Analysis. That’s still a project on hold for me at the moment, but if any readers have an interest in this topic I’d be keen to hear from you!
