 Q. No Questions Marks Total Marks 1 What are the features of operations research? What are the limitations of operations research? A List and explain any five features of operations research List and explain the five limitations of operations research 5 5 10 2 a.  Explain the graphical method of solving Linear Programming Problem. b.  A furniture manufacturing company plans to make two products: chairs and tables- from its available resources, which consists of 400 board feet of mahogany timber and 450 man-hours of labour. It knows that to make a chair requires 5 board feet and 10 man- hours and yields a profit of Rs.45 while each table uses 20 board feet and 15 man-hours and has a profit of Rs.80.   Formulate the LPP to maximise the profit.     Source:  Srivastava,  U.  K.,  Shenoy,  G.V.,  &  Sharma,  S.  C.  (2007).  Quantitative Techniques for Mangerial Decisions.
