  • Linear programming: this is helpful in determining the optimum product mix for maximizing contribution, considering the capacity constraints.
  • Computers simulation: it is helpful to determine the effects of various scheduling policies.
  • Decision tree analysis: this can be applied for long term capacity problems.
