On SAS Proc Optmodel,

I set variable A, which is a 2*2 matrix [p,k]

And variable B, and C are both 2*1 matrix [p,k], where B and C are one particular value of k. Like A = [B,C]

For coding convenience, sometimes I used A, and sometimes I used B and C.

I may need a constraint to describe the relationship between them. A = [B, C]

How can I put it as a constraint?

Thank you!

You can define explicit constraints, but this looks to me like a good place to instead use implicit variables:

impvar B {p in PSET} = A[p,**1**];

impvar C {p in PSET} = A[p,**2**];

Thanks, I tried in this way but it seems A is a 0 matrix.

May I ask how to define specific constraint?

I don't understand what is wrong with what you tried. What I suggested should work no matter what values the A variables take. If you post your code, I'll take a look.

Here's how you can define B with an explicit variable and constraint:

var B {PSET};

con Bcon {p in PSET}: B

= A[p,**1**];

You can do something similar for C.

Sorry it seems I cannot upload a file larger than 1kb.

And below is part of my code:

var rep_size_1 {PRODUCTS, STAGES2}>=0 integer;

var rep_size_12 {PRODUCTS}>=0 integer;

var rep_size_13 {PRODUCTS}>=0 integer;

constraint c1 {p in PRODUCTS}:

rep_size_12

= rep_size_1 [p,1];

constraint c2 {p in PRODUCTS}:

rep_size_13

= rep_size_1 [p,2];

With the error message:

ERROR: The array subscript 'rep_size_1[1,1]' is invalid at line 1051 column 38.

Thanks!

Evidently, STAGES2 does not contain 1. In that case, you will get the same error if you use IMPVAR.

You need to use other values for k if they are not 1 and 2.

Got it.

You are the best, Rob！
