Reconsider the example illustrating the use of robust optimization that was presented in Sec. 7.4. Wyndor management now feels that the analysis described in this example was overly conservative for three reasons: (1) it is unlikely that the true value of a parameter will turn out to be quite near either end of its range of uncertainty shown in Table 7.10, (2) it is even more unlikely that the true values of all the parameters in a constraint will turn out to simultaneously lean toward the undesirable end of their ranges of uncertainty, and (3) there is a bit of latitude in each constraint to compensate for violating the constraint by a tiny bit. Therefore, Wyndor management has asked its staff (you) to solve the model again while using ranges of uncertainty that are half as wide as those shown in Table 7.10.
