Programmed Learning: Some Non-Confirming Results

Whitlock, Gerald H.
June 1967
Training & Development Journal;Jun67, Vol. 21 Issue 6, p11
Examines the basic assumptions underlying linear programming. Material is broken into small steps or frames; Student actively responding to each frame; Student receiving immediate knowledge of results; Assumption that the student is always right and the student proceeds at his own pace.

    We establish a duality theory for a broad class of deterministic inventory control problems on continuous spaces that includes the classical joint replenishment problem and inventory routing. Using this theory, we establish the existence of an optimal policy, which has been an open question. We...
