A linear programming model was developed to identify the optimum shop loading option and the minimum aggregate manufacturing cost from three process alternatives in a metal casting company. The study stems from the needs expressed by the Marketing, Production Planning and Engineering Departments of the company, and is based on the market research which identified a growing need for a "CNC machining blank" for the medical prosthetic implant market.
