"The advent of computerized planning and control systems now provides the opportunity for managerial accountants to reconsider the structure of their acounting systems and the data they provide to the organization. This paper suggests that linear programming (LP) is an appropriate technique for inclusion in the managerial accounting information system and addresses the following implementation problems: (1) the accountant's role in the LP process, (2) obtaining data, (3) understanding the assumptions of the LP model, (4) behavioral problems, and (5) special problems of using LP as a planning and control device. Examples are drawn from accounting and other disciplines to illustrate the progress that has been made towards solving the problems. Whenever possible, the impact of new computer technology is considered. Operational accounting is presented as one modification to present systems that is deserving of special consideration. Finally, several areas for future research are presented."
