# APPLICATION OF LINEAR PROGRAMMING IN PROFIT MAXIMIZATION USING SIMPLEX ALGORITHM

ABSTARCT

The major aim of this study is to express the viability of statistical procedures in making decisions of production, using the linear programming approach in detecting the best possible decision. The effective use of liner programming has been scarcely used by managers and hence, this study tends to explore the application of linear programming on production companies. The data used were obtained from Our Choice Bakery, Benin City. The computer approach of the excel solver was used in analyzing the data to determine the best decision on what quantity of product to produce to maximize profit. From the analysis, it was found that in other to enhance maximum profit (N150000) daily, the management should produce 40020 quantities of large loaves of bread, 2700 quantity of cake, 750 quantities of shortbread (madiga) and 350 quantities of meat pie. Hence, it was concluded and recommended that the continuous application of linear programming can aid the maximization of profit.
