The Static Approach to Quadratic Dynamic Goal Programming
The target values are also considered as functions of time, that is, there is a target value on the accumulated value of the objective functional for each period of time within the planning period. This allows the decision maker control the behavior of the functional along the whole planning period, rather than only their final values.
The dynamic problem can be turned into a static one, where the decision variables are a vector formed by the values of the control variables in each period of time. This makes possible the use of a nonlinear Goal Programming package to solve the problem.
The algorithm has been implemented on a VAX computer, in FORTRAN language and with the aid of the NAG subroutine library. Results on some test problems are also reported.
