Multiobjective Programming for Generating Alternatives: A Multiple-Use Planning Example
Abstract:This paper describes two related issues pertaining to the role of multiple objective programming (MOP) in complex forest planning problems. First, some implications of using inadequate MOP models in complex forest planning problems are described. Second, an alternative MOP approach--modeling to generate alternatives--is presented and illustrated using a multiple-use planning example. For. Sci. 33(2):458-468.
