Linear Ranges

This table is used within the Network Optimization experiment only. 

Each record of this table is a condition that will be used by the Indicator Constraints table as an If or Then statement. 

To create a linear range you must define:

Column

Description

Name

Specify the name of the linear range. It must be a meaningful name since it will be used in the Indicator Constraints table.

Lower Bound

The lower bound that the resulting value of the Expression must not violate to allow the specified Then statement to be executed.

Expression

allows you to define the expression that must stay within the specified bounds.

Expression - custom expression consisting of:
  • Coefficient - [by default 1 is specified] the value the Variable must be multiplied by.
  • Variable - one of the existing constraints (defined in the Custom constraints, Product flows, Product storages or Production tables).
  • e.g. Coefficient - 2.65Variable - Product Flows 1 = the specified flow will be multiplied by 2.65. If the table record containing this expression is used as an If statement in the Indicator Constraints table, the resulting value of this expression must stay within the specified bounds, otherwise, Then statement will not be executed .

Upper Bound

The upper bound that the resulting value of the Expression must not violate to allow the specified Then statement to be executed.
