a.Formulate a linear programming model to determine how GSI should schedule production for the new order in order to minimize the total production cost. Data: Contract quantity of regular shafts = 200,000 Contract quantity of stiff shafts = 75,000 Capacity of San Diego plant = 120,000 Capacity of Tampa plant = 180,000 Check point: Total contract quantity = 200,000 + 75,000 = 275,000 Total capacity = 120,000 + 180,000 = 300,000 This is a minimization problem. Total capacity is greater than total contract quantity therefore problem is feasible. Cost structure is as follows San Diego Cost Tampa Cost Regular shaft \$5.25 \$4.95 Stiff shaft \$5.45 \$5.70 Decision variables: Let x11 be the quantity of regular shaft produced at San Diego plant x12 be the quantity of regular shaft produced at Tampa plant x21 be the quantity of stiff shaft produced at San Diego plant x22 be the quantity of stiff shaft produced at Tampa plant Objective: Objective is to minimize total production cost Total production cost = qty of regular shaft produced at San Diego plant*unit cost of
