Abstract or Summary
  • Operations research is concerned with the science of decision and uses mathematical models to aid in making these decisions. In this thesis operations research is used in connection with the lumber industry. The problem of concern has to do with a lumber company that is unable to supply the mill demand with its own supply of timber and must buy from the government to make up the deficiency. The decision to be made is how much company timber and how much government timber should be allocated to the mill in any given year during the period under study. The model used in this paper is a linear programming model. Other operations research techniques presented in connection with the allocation problem are post-optimality analysis and regression analysis. The model is such that almost all calculations are done on a computer.
