BIT 3414 Copyright 2011 p. 1 Aggregate Production Planning with Linear Programming The optimal solution for an aggregate production plan can be found with a linear programming model. Model Formulation Decision Variables Objective Function Minimize cost Constraints Demand, Capacity, Production, Workforce Decision Variables Consider a Trial and Error table for a mixed strategy of Level Production, Overtime, and Subcontracting: Reading Pages 618 – middle 619 R t = units produced w/ regular production in period t O t = units produced w/overtime production in period t S t = units produced w/ subcontracted production in period t I t = inventory at end of period t W t = workforce size for period t H t = # hired for period t F t = # fired for period t Regular Overtime Subcontract Quarter Demand Production Production Production Inventory
