Determining an Optimum Model for Production in Paper Industry: Case Study of Iranian Mazandaran Wood and Paper Industries

Majid Azizi and Mohammad Aghapour

Abstract:
In current research, Mazandaran Wood and Paper Industries (MWPI) has been studied. With respect to increasing of paper consumption in the country, optimization of the product has been notified due to limitations in wood resources as the most important factor in the production. In the factory, three kinds of products are produced which are printing and writing paper, corrugated medium paper and newspaper paper. Linear programming method has been used in the research. Limitations are wood resources, manpower costs, chemical materials, distribution costs and production capacity. Profit maximization is objective function for three kinds of the products. Results show that with respect to the model, optimum amounts for printing and writing paper and corrugated medium paper have to increase 35 and 18%, respectively. But the amount of newspaper paper has to decrease 13% in comparison with real production.
