Abstract

A mathematical model is developed to assess the management of tourism activities at Wetland Putrajaya. The goal programming model is designed to find the optimal solution of maximizing the estimate profit of activity and maximizing the number of participants involved using the LINDO 6.1 software. Seven activities in Wetland Putrajaya under the Putrajaya Corporation were considered. The data and information were obtained from the 2008 record to estimate the cost and the number of participants. The result showed that Wetland Putrajaya can achieve a profit of more than 40% of the total cost with a corresponding optimal number of participants involved.
