MUNHOZ, José Renato e MORABITO, Reinaldo. A model based on linear programming and goal programming to analyze a frozen concentrated orange juice production and distribution system. Gest. Prod. [online]. 2001, vol.8, n.2, pp. 139-159. ISSN 0104-530X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-530X2001000200004.
This work proposes a model based on linear programming and goal programming to support decisions in the blending process and distribution of frozen concentrated orange juice. This study explores the importance of blending decisions for the logistic analysis of the orange juice distribution, besides transportation and storage decisions. The model utilizes well-known concepts from the literature of blending problems and multistage, multiproduct and multiperiod production planning problems, and it was solved using the GAMS (General Algebraic Modeling System) programming language. A case study was developed in an orange juice industry located in São Paulo State, and the preliminary results are promising.
