Abstract

Illustrates a two‐level hierarchical system structure for solving the production planning problems of a steel manufacturing system. The structure is basically a goal‐diffusion mechanism between two levels. At the lower level a goal programming problem is solved and at the higher level a multi‐objective dynamic program is used to derive an optimum aggregate production plan and provide optimal resource allocation.
