Maple has been able to solve linear programnming (LP) problems since Release 9 with Optimization[LPSolve]. This is a very important feature for people who are interested in optimization applications. However, as far as I know, LPSolve only provides the final optimal solution, but does not give any sensitivity analysis results.

I believe that LP solutions without sensitivity analysis are not very useful since one needs to compute the dual prices for resources, optimality ranges for objective function coefficients, etc.

Is it possible to perform sensitivity analyses in LPSolve? If not, I would strongly suggest including this feature in future releases.
