Optimal Mathematical Models in Planning the Development of a Branch and in Technical Policy

Listed author(s):
  • L. Kantorovich

The return to the branch management of industry and its elevation to a new level create conditions favorable to the scientifically substantiated resolution of the problem of branch development as a whole in all its aspects. In this area, considerable use must be made of mathematical methods and models as well as of analysis and calculations based on them. At the present time, rather widespread use is being made of the simplest optimal models of the development and location of branches, models calculated by linear programming methods and which in many cases are resolved even on the basis of algorithms and the transport problem. (1) Calculations of the development of branches as a whole or in individual regions have already been made for a number of branches with the aid of these models, and in preparing the plan for the next five years they must encompass a greater portion of the branches. The results of calculations for certain branches (e.g., the fuel-energy balance) were already considered in the compilation of the five-year plan for 1966-1970.
