Abstract: In this paper, we present a real life case study of the design of a multi-product, multi-stage, multi-period production planning model for an aluminum company. The objective of the model is to obtain an optimal operational policy that minimizes the total costs of aluminum and final casting products. The model is formulated as a linear program that takes into account the materials flow from the purchasing of raw materials to the reduction and casting stages. The model will assist the company in its decision making with respect to uncontrollable parameters changes and any modification in its production policy.
