Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division

S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division) is a government agency that is responsible for law enforcement and counter-terrorism measures. It was recently infiltrated by the villain organization HYDRA, which discredited S.H.I.E.L.D. and then destroyed not only its reputation, but also its headquarters and killed many of its agents. Under the leadership of some of the remaining agents, including Phil Coulson, Steve Rogers, and Sharon Carter, S.H.I.E.L.D. is now rebuilding and striking back at HYDRA.

Steve Rogers, also known as Captain America, will be in charge of retraining agents with special abilities and superheroes. Sharon Carter is working on rebuilding the headquarters and the technology. This leaves Phil Coulson in charge of human resources. Between the three of them, they’ve determine three different types of operations to conduct to expose and eliminate HYDRA, and the following information is about the resources needed and the success level of each type of operation:

  Operation A Operation B Operations C
HYDRA agents eliminated 120 90 150
S.H.I.E.L.D. agents needed 5 3 4
Cost per operation $5 million $7 million $8 million

Your job is to use your OPR skills to help The Captain and Agents Carter and Coulson with their efforts. Here are the goals that they have determined, in order of importance:

Maintain the current employment level of 40 agents, avoid increasing the number until they can be sure that new, trustworthy agents can be recruited and trained.

Billionaire Tony Stark has pledged financial resources of $55 million for these operations. Keep the total costs to less than $55 million.

Eliminate at least 1,250 HYDRA agents.

Maintain the current employment level of 40 agents, avoid decreasing the number so that they have as much manpower as possible to fight HYDRA

S.H.I.E.L.D. will strike back at HYDRA with simultaneous operations so as to try to surprise and overwhelm them. Help them defeat HYDRA by determining how many of each type of operation to run.
