The purpose of this review paper is to set an augmentation approach and exemplify distribution of augmentation works in Simplex method. The augmentation approach is classified into three forms whereby it comprises addition, substitution and integration. From the diversity study, the result shows that substitution approach appeared to be the highest usage frequency, which is about 45.2% from the total of percentage. This is then followed by addition approach which makes up 32.3% of usage frequency and integration approach for about 22.6% of usage frequency which makes it the least percentage of the overall usage frequency approach. Since it is being the least usage percentage, the paper is then interested to foresee a future study of integration approach that can be performed from the executed distribution of the augmentation works according to Simplex’s computation stages. A theme screening is then conducted with a set of criteria and themes to come out with a proposal of new integration approach of augmentation of Simplex method.
