KKTPM Calculator provides an easy interface through which practitioners can make use of Karush Kuhn Tucker Proximity Measure (KKTPM) without delving into the intricacies of proofs and calculations. It can be used to calculate all the four approximations (direct, projected, adjusted and approximate) along with the corresponding set of Lagrange multipliers at a specific point.
