Linear Programming and Sensitivity Analysis in Production Planning


Taghrid Imam, Fatma Hassan


Vol. 9  No. 2  pp. 456-465


Production planning process consists of three stages, namely, 1) manufacturing and marketing data preparation, 2) generation of production items and selling alternatives, and 3) production plan formulation. In this paper, Integer Linear Programming IP model in used for optimization of the produced and soled items under manufacturing constraints that will maximize the profit. Sensitivity Analysis SA presents a post optimality investigation of how a change in the model data changes the optimal solution. SA allows decision makers to determine how “sensitive” the optimal solution is to changes in data values.
