Title: Modeling of production plan and scheduling of manufacturing process for a beverage company in Ghana
Authors: Boahen, Mathias Kwaku
Issue Date: 1-Apr-2016
Abstract: Production scheduling is a decision-making process that is used in manufacturing and service industries to achieve effciency and minimize production cost. The goal with this research is to optimize the production and Scheduling of products of a beverage company by developing a model that displays the optimal production plan for a given planning horizon. The model is designed in a way that it can be implemented on any kind of Beverage Company: The model can also be implemented on different kind of production to make a production plan. A Mixed Linear Programming Model to support decision making is presented, in order to nd the optimal production plan, by maximizing the production and reducing cost. Data from Promasidor Ghana Limited was applied to the model. Results from the model were analyzed and sensitivity analysis was carried out. I found out that the mixed linear programming model is an e cient approach to solve a production planning and Scheduling problems.
