add_manual_locked_constraints: Add manually specified locked constraints

add_manual_locked_constraintsR Documentation

Add manually specified locked constraints


Add constraints to a conservation planning problem to ensure that solutions allocate (or do not allocate) specific planning units to specific management zones. This function offers more fine-grained control than the add_locked_in_constraints() and add_locked_out_constraints() functions.


add_manual_locked_constraints(x, data)

## S4 method for signature 'ConservationProblem,data.frame'
add_manual_locked_constraints(x, data)

## S4 method for signature 'ConservationProblem,tbl_df'
add_manual_locked_constraints(x, data)



problem() object.


data.frame or tibble::tibble() object. See the Data format section for more information.


An updated problem() object with the constraints added to it.

Data format

The argument to data should be a data.frame with the following columns:


integer planning unit identifier.


character names of zones. Note that this argument is optional for arguments to x that contain a single zone.


numeric values indicating how much of each planning unit should be allocated to each zone in the solution. For example, the numeric values could be binary values (i.e., zero or one) for problems containing binary-type decision variables (using the add_binary_decisions() function). Alternatively, the numeric values could be proportions (e.g., 0.5) for problems containing proportion-type decision variables (using the add_proportion_decisions()).
