OpenSolver is a great Excel Add-in that solves optimization models. The following article will describe how to solve a Linear Programming model using this tool (first you must Download and install OpenSolver in Excel). For educational purposes we will consider a linear programming model with two decision variables and four constraints, nevertheless you can easily extend […]

## What does a Shadow Price of Zero mean in Linear Programming

As we have discussed in previous articles, the Shadow Price of a constraint represents the rate of change of the optimal value as a result of a marginal change in the right-hand side of a constraint. “Marginal” is understood as a modification that does not change the geometry of the problem, that is to say, […]

## How to Calculate the Shadow Price of a Constraint

The Shadow Price of a constraint in Linear Programming indicates how much the value of an objective (optimal) function changes due to a marginal variation in the right-hand side of a constraint. It is assumed that the rest of the model’s parameters remain constant. It should be noted beforehand that the Shadow Price can be […]
