-There are two types of sensitivity information that one can extract from a solved GAMS model, information available ​from within GAMS and information available only within the LP solver. ​+There are two types of sensitivity information that one can extract from a solved GAMS model, information available within GAMS and information available only within the LP solver. ​
  
-Upon solving an LP model, all GAMS solvers return 4 sets of values to GAMS: level and marginal values for the primal variables, and level and marginal values for the constraints. (N.B. The rhs term is not included in the level values for the constraints.) From this information,​ it is possible to compute, ​from within the GAMS model, a range of parameter values for which the current solution (both primal and dual variables) will not change. Such a range of parameter values can be computed for all rhs coefficients having a zero marginal value, where the range of parameter values depends on the current level value for the constraint and the sense of the inequality in question. ​+Upon solving an LP model, all GAMS solvers return 4 sets of values to GAMS: level and marginal values for the primal variables, and level and marginal values for the constraints.

 Similarly, the set of obj. coefficients that can change without changing the primal or dual level values coincides with the set of primal variables currently at their bound. These coefficients can move an infinite amount in one direction, and a finite amount (determined by the marginal value or reduced cost) in the other. ​ Similarly, the set of obj. coefficients that can change without changing the primal or dual level values coincides with the set of primal variables currently at their bound.

-To determine the range of values a particular parameter can take without forcing a change in the current basis, but while allowing the level values to change, one must have a representation of the current basis. Since GAMS does not keep this information,​ these ranges must be produced by the LP solver. ​ Documentation on how this is done using GAMS/​CPLEX ​is given [[solver:​sensitivity_analysis_with_gams_cplex|here]]+To determine the range of values a particular parameter can take without forcing a change in the current basis, but while allowing the level values to change, one must have a representation of the current basis.
