Blending problems A food is manufactured by refining row oils and blending them together. VEG1, VEG2 cost (per tons) respectively 110 € and 120 € OIL1,OIL2,OIL3 cost (per tons) respectively 130 €, 110 € and 115 € Production costs The final food is sold at 150 € per ton.Selling price How much the food manufacturer make his product so to maximize his profit ? Objective function The raw oils came in two categories: vegetables (VEG1, VEG2) and Non-vegetables oils (OIL1,OIL2,OIL3)

3
Mathematical model The decision variables represents the quantities of oils to be blended togheter We assume that there is no loss of weight in the refining process and blending VEG1 = x 1, VEG2 = x 2, OIL1 = x 3, OIL2 = x 4, OIL3 = x 5 Total product = x 1 + x 2 + x 3 + x 4 + x 5 x 1, x 2, x 3, x 4, x 5 >= 0 Objective function: maximize profit = selling price - costs

4
Mathematical model Selling price = 150 * total product= 150 * (x 1 + x 2 + x 3 + x 4 + x 5 ) Max 40 x x x x x 5 x 1, x 2, x 3, x 4, x 5 >= 0 Unit cost of VEG1 Costs = 110 x x x x x 5 Overall problem

5
Excel table =SOMMA(C7:G7) cost=C5*C7+D5*D7+E5*E7+F5*F7+G5*G7 Selling price = C10*E10 data

6
Setting the Solver in Excel Only non negative constraints

7
Final result with Excel There is no optimal solution (the algorithm does not converge) Unboundedness The model is not well defined !

8
Refining the model of blending problem In any month it is not possible to refine more than 200 tons of VEGETABL OILS and 250 tons of NON-VEGETABL OILS Availability

9
Mathematical model Availability constraints Max 40 x x x x x 5 x 1 + x 2 <= 200 x 3 + x 4 + x 5 <= 250 x 1, x 2, x 3, x 4, x 5 >= 0 VEG1 + VEG2 <= 200 OIL1 + OIL2 + OIL3 <= 250 The new problem

10
Excel table new data x 1 +x 2 = C8+D8=C9 x 3 +x 4 +x 5 = E8+F8+G8=F9

11
Setting the Solver constraints Objective function = profit

12
Final result with Excel

13
Adding hardness constraint Technological restriction on the hardness of the final product. In the percentage it must lie between 3 and 6. It is assumed that hardness behaves linearly In blending problem there is a typical constraint on the “quality” of the final product new data = hardness % of raw oils

14
Modelling hardness constraint Hardness constraints: 8.8 VEG VEG2 + 2 OIL OIL2 +5 OIL3 Contribution in “hardness” of the raw oils Requirement in hardness of the total product 6 (VEG1 + VEG2 + OIL1 + OIL2 + OIL3)max 3 (VEG1 + VEG2 + OIL1 + OIL2 + OIL3)min

15
Hardness constraints Hardness constraints: 8.8 x x x x x 5 <= 6(x 1 + x 2 + x 3 + x 4 + x 5 ) 8.8 x x x x x 5 >= 3(x 1 + x 2 + x 3 + x 4 + x 5 ) but it is not linear ! These constraints can be written also in the form Hardness in % of the final product

16
Mathematical model Max 40 x x x x x 5 x 1 + x 2 <= 200 x 3 + x 4 + x 5 <= x x x x x 5 <= 6(x 1 + x 2 + x 3 + x 4 + x 5 ) 8.8 x x x x x 5 >= 3(x 1 + x 2 + x 3 + x 4 + x 5 ) x 1, x 2, x 3, x 4, x 5 >= 0 The final blendig mathematical model

A multi plant problem A company consists of two factories A and B. Each factory makes two products: standard and deluxe Each factory use two processes, grinding and polishing for producing its product Each unit of product yields the following profit

21
A multi plant problem The grinding and polishing times in hours for a unit of each type of product in each factory are Factory A has a grinding capacities of 80 hours per week and polishing capacity of 60 hours per week Factory B has a grinding capacities of 60 hours per week and polishing capacity of 75 hours per week

The model is independent from data

35
Look at the company in this scenario Overall production = sum of the production of factory A and factory B Profit of the company = sum of the profits of factory A and factory B This solution has been obtained with arbitrary allocation of resources

36
Changing the scenario Factory A is allocated 90 Kg Factory B is allocated 30 Kg The solution has been obtained with arbitrary allocation of raw material, we can see what happens when allocation change 120 kg. Total raw material

38
Changing the scenario: excel view Factory A Profit is higher than the preceding scenario Factory B Profit is lower than the preceding scenario

39
Look at the company in the new scenario Overall production = sum of the production of factory A and factory B Profit of the company = sum of the profits of factory A and factory B This solution is worst than the preceding one
