Fabrication and assembly operations, Part IV: Linear programming in production planning

by B. P. Dzielinski
In many industries, production planning involves the allocation of various resources in the joint production of similar products. Inventory levels, labor decisions, and an economic choice of lot sizes are all influential in the planning process. Formulated in terms of mathematical programming, the economic and mathematical facets of production planning are discussed. A feasible computation technique is suggested.
