The simple structure of the network model allows
very efficient implementations of the primal simplex
technique for linear programming. One such implementation
is contained in this add-in called Teach Network.
The add-in has the file name teachnet.xla.
We use these pages to illustrate the workings of
When the add-in is installed, a single new item is
added to the OR_MS menu as shown on the right. Clicking
on this item displays a dialog for the parameters
of the network model.
The examples for this section are in the Teach Network
demo (teachnetdem.xls). To solve or change the model
you must have the Teach Network add-in loaded. Use
the Relink buttons command to establish links to the
