Quantification of soft variables

Soft variables are related to constraints such as:

• a prestigious entrance;

• an eye-catching appearance;

• environmentally friendly,

Such variables can be taken into account in the LP model by proper quantification. For instance:

• a prestigious instance: extra budget for it;

• an eye-catching appearance: idem;

• environmentally friendly: (specified) constraint for area to be kept green;

Within the extra budgets for the prestigious entrance and eye-catching appearance of the building, the architect has complete freedom. What the green area will look like is up to the landscape designer. When such constraints related to soft variables become roadblocks to achieving a positive solution space, negotiations between stakeholders can take place to alleviate them in the same way as is done with constraints that represent 'hard' variables.
