AN OBJECT ORIENTED APPROACH TO GEOMETRIC PROGRAMMING
Authors: *Ebojoh E, Akpobi J.A, Tizhe C
Geometric programming is an efficient tool for solving nonlinear problems. This work developed and tested a Visual Basic programming language to solve the unconstrained geometric programming problems. The analysis of the result obtained from the Visual Basic programmed Language showed no significant error, whereas the manually calculated solution contained about 0.5% error. These results show that resource allocations on demand can be altered using the manual calculations and this will as well give a false figure on demand necessary for optimality. By the use of this program, the problems encountered in manual calculations can be eliminated.
