Operations Research in Engineering Management
A linear programming model is developed to minimize the labor cost of the development of a technical service manual for a new product line for the Freightliner Corporation. This is achieved by assigning aggregate work hours to various professional groups involved. The model assures participation by all relevant groups, while assuming adequate hours are assigned to complete the project on schedule. Subject to operational goals, cost is minimized.
