Abstract: A new algorithm, SPMFsimple, for finding the complete chain of solutions of the product selection model is presented in this report. λ-directed simple residual path is identified to the only kind of residual path necessary for the new algorithm. By augmenting the right amount of flows along λ-directed simple residual paths, the new algorithm is monotone convergent.
