Product Overview

A pilot/manager in a large corporate aviation department must formulate a fueling plan for an upcoming four-leg trip. Considerations for the fueling plan include different fuel prices at each airport (fuel is much cheaper if bought at home) and ramp fees levied at destination airports if fuel purchases fail to meet specified minimums. Other considerations include aircraft weight limits for takeoffs and landings (with fuel being a large component of aircraft weight), fuel tank capacity, and a company policy specifying a minimum amount of fuel required at each landing.


Learning Objectives

To illustrate the use of mixed linear/integer programming to solve an exciting, easy-to-understand business problem. To develop skill in building Solver models.
