This paper derives a novel procedure for testing the Karush-Kuhn-Tucker (KKT) first-order optimality conditions in models with multiple random responses. Such models arise in simulation-based optimization with multivariate outputs. This paper focuses on ‘expensive’ simulations, which have small sample sizes. The paper estimates the gradients (in the KKT conditions) through low-order polynomials, fitted locally. These polynomials are estimated using Ordinary Least Squares (OLS), which also… CONTINUE READING
