Description

This article, the second of two parts, describes a package designed to supplement Mathematica's linear programming facility. Building on the foundation laid in the first part, we first develop a set of tools for sensitivity analysis of the optimal solution. In order to utilize Mathematica's efficient linear programming routine, we then develop a function that can deduce the final tableau from the Spartan output of ConstrainedMax. With this function, the package can be applied to substantive problems, relying on Mathematica's native code for intensive computation.
