A manufacturer can produce two products, A and B, during a given time period. Each of these products requires four different manufacturing operations: grinding, turning, assembling and testing. The manufacturing requirements in hours per unit of products A and B are given below.

 A B Grinding 1 2 Turning 3 1 Assembling 6 3 Testing 5 4

The available capacities of these operations in hours for the given time period are: grinding 30; turning 60, assembling 200; testing 200. The contribution to profit is Rs 20 for each unit of A and Rs 30 for each unit of B. The firm can sell all that it produces at the prevailing market price. Determine the optimum amount of A and B to produce during the given time period. Formulate this as a LPP.

##### Solution :-

Let x and y units of products A and B were manufactured respectively.
The contribution to profit is Rs 2 for each unit of A and Rs 3 for each unit of B.
Therefore for x units of A and y units of B,the contribution to profit would be Rs 2x and Rs 3y respectively.

​Let Z denote the total profit

Then, Z = Rs (2x + 3y)

Total hours required for grinding, turning, assembling and testing are  x+2y, 3x+y, 6x+3y, 5x+4yx+2y, 3x+y, 6x+3y, 5x+4y respectively.

The available capacities of these operations in hours for the given period are grinding 30, turning 60, assembling 200 and testing 200.

x+2y≤30,

3x+y≤60, 6x+3y≤200,

5x+4y≤200x+2y≤30,

3x+y≤60, 6x+3y≤200,

5x+4y≤200
Units of products cannot be negative.Therefore,
x,y≥0x,y≥0

Hence, the required LPP is as follows:

Maximize Z = 2x + 3y

subject to

x+2y≤30,

3x+y≤60,

6x+3y≤200,

5x+4y≤200
