In this paper a nonlinear programming approach is used for the minimization of total communication cost to determine the optimum room dimensions for each room. The nonlinear programming problem is solved by the Improved Move Limit Method of Sequential Linear Programming. In this method, the objective function and all the constraints are linearised in the neighborhood of the design point and an optimum obtained through simplex algorithm. To ensure that the movement is not large, appropriate movedoi:10.4304/jcp.3.4.58-64 fatcat:idhosqbebzgx3ej5o44i7yhxmq
