Hi,

I'm having trouble laying out this problem below. I would really appreciate if you could help me.

The production-line employees at GE work four days a week, 10 hours a day. Each day of the

week, (at least) the following numbers of line employees are needed: Monday–Friday, 7 employees; Saturday and Sunday, 3 employees. GE has 11 production-line employees. Formulate an LP that can be used to maximize the number of consecutive days off received by the employees.

For example, a worker who gets Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday off receives two consecutive days off.

Many thanks,

Jess P.
