Abstract

This chapter contains a brief description of paper manufacturing process and presents a solution to an important decision making problem concerning wood inventory management and the production mix problem. The problem is about minimizing the cost subject to shelf-life constraints of wood species, mixing proportion constraints, proportion of direct feed (i.e., use of fresh wood in production), and opening inventory constraints. This complex problem is modelled as a linear program and an efficient decision support system was developed for a leading paper manufacturing company in India.
