This report develops a Linear Programming Model to optimize the integrated circuit manufacturing process relative to business demand. Management must optimize equipment utilization and use excess capacity with opportunistic incremental business. This model is constructed to make a selection from several potential customers based on the specific requirements of the customers and constraints of the equipment for each unique set of deliverables. The model will be valid for use over the next year, and could be utilized by company management in committing to opportunities, and by production scheduling personnel to determine production run quantities.
