Menu Planning with a Dynamic Goal Programming Approach

Title variants
Languages of publication
Dynamic Goal Programming (DGP) represents an extension of Goal Programming (GP). It is characterized by the importance of time factor in relation to its variables. As a complex decision making problem, Menu Planning Problem (MPP) requires the development of methodologies which are able to combine different and conflicting goals incorporating the dynamic characteristics. The article reviews some of the studies and approaches used in MPP. It deals with the Standard GP model of MPP. It provides a DGP formulation for solving the MPP. An MPP for the hemodialysis (HD) patient is an application that best exemplifies the proposed dynamic formulation.
