Integer Programming Model and Algorithmic Evolution: A Case From Sales Resource Allocation, TIMS Studies in Management Sciences
The evolutionary change in an integer programming model and resulting algorithmic modifications are traced for an actual sales force time allocation application. The need to solve problems quickly dictated a special purpose structure-exploring algorithm. But as new practical considerations arose and were incorporated into the model, algorithmic modifications were needed.
