In everyday life, and especially in business, situations arise which involve trying to gain the maximum profit for work, or trying to minimize loss. If each of us would investigate linear programming procedures, we could solve some of these everyday problems very quickly and efficiently. Linear programming procedures provide for solving realistic problems of everyday life. Specifically, the assignment problem can be used to delegate tasks to specific jobs in the best possible manner so as to obtain maximum feedback. There exist many methods and variations to the assignment problem and many applications of these methods.
