SEC, a manufacturer of silicon and epitaxial wafers faced a problem of allocating equipment and labor resources to maximize profits while meeting product mix requirements. This project developed a linear programming model for the problem. The solution revealed that 5" wafers were least profitable, addition of reactors for 6" wafers was desirable and more efficient use of labor was warranted.


This project is only available to students, staff, and faculty of Portland State University.
