The reformulation of two mixed integer programming problems

By H. Paul Williams


Two practical problems are described, each of which can be formulated in more than one way as a mixed integer programming problem. The computational experience with two formulations of each problem is given. It is pointed out how in each case a reformulation results in the associated linear programming problem being more constrained. As a result the reformulated mixed integer problem is easier to solve. The problems are a multi-period blending problem and a mining investment problem
