This paper is one of the series of 11 Working Papers presenting the software for interactive decision support and software tools for developing decision support systems. These products constitute the outcome of the contracted study agreement between the System and Decision Sciences Program at IIASA and several Polish scientific institutions. The theoretical part of these results is presented in the IIASA Working Paper WP-88-071 entitled "Theory, Software and Testing Examples in Decision Support Systems" which contains the theoretical and methodological backgrounds of the software systems developed within the project.

This paper presents the POSTAN 3 package. This package constitutes the tool for postoptimal analysis for linear and linear-fractional programming problems. POSTAN consists of a number of FORTRAN routines which are incorporated into MINOS, the well known linear and nonlinear programming code developed at the Stanford University. The postoptimal analysis is performed after MINOS has found an optimal solution and is initiated by extending the original MINOS specification file. The main function of POSTAN is ranging with respect to parameters specified by the user and computing the sensitivity coefficients.
