Abstract: A comprehensive case study to introduce students to several concepts from linear, integer, and goal programming in an integrative manner is presented. Starting with a relatively simple production planning
decision problem, the case progressively incorporates generalizations to introduce various modeling principles.
Each variation to the case enables the teacher to engage in insightful discussion into the nature of the optimal
solutions; the effect on the optimum solution of changes to the objective function or to key constraints. The case
article also describes several ways in which the case can be used, ranging from a comprehensive introduction
to a concluding capstone case in an undergraduate or graduate course in linear programming.
