Mathematical model for goal nonlinear programming. (English) Zbl 1107.90449
Summary: The basic idea in goal programming is to incorporate all managerial objectives into the goal programming formulation. The goal linear programming requires that all functions and all of the constraints, which are in the mathematical model, must be linear functions and variables must be nonnegative.
In this paper we obtain a goal nonlinear programming (NLP) model, where the requirement for equations to be linear is relaxed. The example illustrates the mathematical model for goal N. L. P.
