Hart Manufacturing makes three products. Each product requires manufacturing operations in three departments: A, B and C. The labor-hour requirements, by department, are: Department Product 1 Product 2 Product 2 A 1.50 3.00 2.00 B 2.00 1.00 2.50 C 0.25 0.25 0.25 During the next production period, the labor-hours available are 450 in department A, 350 in department B, and 50 in department C. The profit contributions per unit are $25 for product 1, $28 for product 2, and $30 for product 3. a- (10 points) Formulate a linear programming model for maximizing total profit contribution. Provide the formulation. b- (10 points) Solve the linear program formulated in part (a) by using Excel. Include the computer output. How much of each product should be produced and what is the projected total profit contribution? c- (10 points) After evaluating the solution obtained in part (a), one of the production supervisors noted that production setup costs had not been taken into account. She noted

Unformatted text preview: that setup costs are $400 for product 1, $550 for product 2, and $600 for product 3. If the solution developed in part (b) is to be used, what is the total profit after taking into account the setup costs? d-(15 points) Management realized that the optimal product mix, taking setup costs into account, might be different from the one recommended in part (b). Formulate a mixed integer linear program that takes setup cost into account. Management has also stated that we should not consider making more than 175 units of product 1, 150 of product 2, or 140 units of product 3. Provide the formulation. e-(10 points) Solve the mixed integer linear program formulated in part (d) by using Excel. Include the computer output. How much of each product should be produced and what is the projected profit? Compare this profit to that obtained in part (c)....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
