Companies should be conscious of optimization of their production and distribution channels for their products. Our purpose is to maximize the profit of a company which deals with such problems. A linear programming model has been implemented for the distribution system to provide optimal operating supply routes. The model simply considers a company with two textile factories manufacturing five identical products in two different areas ("Area" means both market and local suppliers). Sensitivity analysis has been used to improve the earnings of the company and to determine whether the company could handle economic changes.
