• To reduce the wastage the decision was to be made by R&D department.e.The Case • Large amount of wastage in cutting operation • The process involved putting several layers of cloth of standard width on a table and putting stencils. i. . the templates in order to cut the cloth.

Case Background • Zodiac manufactures different types of shirts in different sizes. .

.  Minimize the number of rotation Upper bound on the number of layer is 35.Objective Function • Minimize the setup cost.

Decision Variable • X1= Number of rotations required to fulfill the demand of 54 shirts for size 38 • X2= Number of rotations required to fulfill the demand of 84 shirts for size 40 • X3= Number of rotations required to fulfill the demand of 91 shirts for size 42 • X4= Number of rotations required to fulfill the demand of 60 shirts for size 44 • X5= Number of rotations required to fulfill the demand of 29 shirts for size 46 .

X3. X2. X5 >= 0 and all are integers . X4.• Objective Function Min Z =X1+X2+X3+X4+X5 • Subject to constraints  X1>=2  X2>=3  X3>=3  X4>=2  X5>=1  X1.

Adding Surplus Variable • Objective Function Min Z =X1+X2+X3+X4+X5+0S1+0S2+0S3+0S4+0S5 • Subject to constraints  X1+S1=2  X2+S2=3  X3+S3=3  X4+S4=2  X5+S5=1  Xi. Si >= 0 and all are integers • Where i is 1 to 5 .
