Abstract

This paper is concerned with the development of a model for aiding management decision making in a multiple product chemical and pharmaceutical processing environment. The situation considered is one with several manufacturing locations and transshipment points over several time periods. A multiple goal model is developed to aid decision makers in determining both production and shipment patterns while considering various goals, such as: (i) minimization of the deviation from the desired level of total costs; (ii) minimizing the deviations from the goal levels for final inventories; (iii) minimizing the deviations, from their desired goal levels, of the amounts of certain items that are produced at various plants and/or shipped over certain routes.
