"There is no room for a non-optimal solution in our energy framework", said Prime Minister Abbasi while chairing a meeting on the energy sector.
"There is no room for the non-optimal solution in our energy framework," emphasized the PM.The prime minister reiterated the commitment that measures for eliminating loadshedding were on track and 'our focus is ensuring a bright future for Pakistan'.
Chairing a meeting on energy sector here at the PM Office, he said, 'There is no room for non-optimal solution
in our energy framework.'
This condition results in a non-optimal solution
replacing the actual optimal solution.
Using multiple conventional TCR units is a non-optimal solution
with respect to cost and mass.
Thirdly, the group must know the importance of having a devil's advocate, someone questioning decisions, as it is very easy to converge too quickly into a non-optimal solution
. Just because everyone is biased towards a specific solution does not make it the best one.
This suggests (1) the need for proper control is crucial for peak-setting days and (2) not selecting the best non-optimal solution can mean large cost penalties (about 1.4 at the 25th percentile in Los Angeles and 1.15 in Boston).
The same conclusions as before can be drawn: (1) the need for proper control is very crucial for peak-setting days and (2) not selecting the best non-optimal solution can mean large cost penalties.
The final area for research is to develop an algorithm that allows a scheduler to determine either the first process or the final process to be scheduled independently of all non-optimal solutions
. Our method presented in this paper requires all possible solutions be considered before an optimal solution can be determined.
A natural, ongoing question from students following lectures on integer resource allocation problems asks, "How can I obtain other optimal or non-optimal solutions
for comparison purposes?" It has been our experience that students enjoy the decision analysis phase regarding resource tradeoffs after obtaining a solution to these problems by traditional means.
