Hamilton is a precision machining and manufacturing company that produces a series of high performance
components. Management would like your recommendations on how many products of each type should we
produce each week in order to maximize profit? Please post your recommendation in the eLearning drop
box no later than midnight 22 May 2015. The following departments have provided helpful information.
Overhead costs are estimated to be $3.00/unit for either product. Product 1 retails for $24.05 each and product
2 sells for $17.90 each.
Each product must pass through a lathe and milling process. Both the lathe and the polishing machines are
each available for 40 hours per week. Two operators, one for polishing and one for milling, are required.
The labor costs for operators is $24.00/hour.
Each product 1 spends 5 minutes at the lathe, and 7 minutes at the milling machine. Each product 2 spends 5
minutes at the lathe, 6 minutes at the milling machine.
Each product is made from an stainless steel alloy that costs $20.00/roll. Product 1 requires 1/4 of a roll
while product 2 requires only 1/8 of a roll.
Shipping costs are $6.00/unit for product 1 and $3.00/unit for product 2. The shipping budget is only $2,000.

Management would like to produce at least 2 of each product. The following linear programming model
has been proposed by the UWF business intern.
X1 = # of product 1 manufactured and sold
X2 = # of product 2 manufactured and sold
Max 6X1 + 5X2 Maximize profit
1) 7X1 + 7X2 49 Material 1 supply (kg)
2) 5X1 + 9X2 45 Material 2 supply (kg)
3) 1X1 2 product 1 minimum
4) 1X2 2 product 2 minimum
5) X1, X2 0 Non-negativity
