We use a linear programming model to determine the production scheduling requirements for an air compressor manufacturer's new product line which consists of eight compressors. The objective of the production scheduling is to maximize profit. The model included in this report is intended for use as a quarterly production scheduling tool. Broad opportunities exist for extensions of the model throughout all the company's product lines.
