California Cabinets manufactures outdoor tables the company sells to local dealers throughout the Southwest. Because of an increase in demand for its products, California Cabinets is considering hiring subcontractors to complete its current backlog of orders. The following information is available for each subcontractor (chart is attached as document).
1) Formulate a linear programming model you can use to determine the percentage of wood tables and the percentage of steel tables that should be assigned to each of the three subcontractors to minimize the total cost of completing both projects.
2) Solve the model from Part 1, What percentage of the wood tables and what percentage of the steel tables should be assigned to each subcontractor?
