6. If X_{ij} refers to the number of hours employee i works in week j , then to indicate that the number of working hours of 4 employees in week 3 should not exceed 160 hours, we must have a constraint of the form a. X_{11} + X_{12} + X_{13} + X_{14} ≤ 160 b. X_{13} + X_{23} + X_{33} + X_{43} ≤ 160 c. X_{31} + X_{32} + X_{33} + X_{34} ≤ 160 d. X_{43} ≤ 160 ANSWER: b POINTS: 1 |
7. In aggregate planning models, which of the following statements are correct? a. The number of workers available influences the possible production levels b.
