A linear programming model is developed to maximize profits of an international corporation which faces a problem of scheduling available resources to produce a more competitive product. The company produces mobile industrial equipment and has manufacturing plants in Europe and the U.S. It serves the market in both areas. A plant of limited capacity is available in each area. The company prefers to use existing plants to exploit unused capacity, rather than to build a new factory. The alternatives are to dual-source the product, or choose a plant for worldwide distribution.
