Abstract
The model described in JSORT Research Note RN 9605, "Satisfying Requirements At Minimum Cost: Methodology With Application To Unit Level STANO Requirements", was implemented using LINGO (TRADEMARK) optimisation software. The solution it provides is the lowest cost set of equipment that meets all the requirements of different mission elements. The LINGO (TRADEMARK) model was interfaced with two Microsoft Excel (TRADEMARK) spreadsheets in order to simplify its use. Although the model was implemented for equipment selection problems, it can be applied to a broad range of selection problems. In this research note, a description of the selection model is given. The procedure to use this model with LINGO (TRADEMARK) is then explained in detail.
