Md. Mohibul Islam1*, Sajib Kumar Sikder2 and Md. Sahab Uddin3
Aggregate production planning (APP) is the intermediate range capacity
planning to meet the forecasted demand. The main target of APP is meeting
the forecasted demand based on minimum cost. Forecasted demand,
related operating cost and capacity are considered precise for solving the
APP problem for a particular time period. The proposed approach attempts
to minimize total costs with reference to inventory levels, labor levels,
overtime, subcontracting levels, and labor, machine and warehouse
capacity. The three different models are used to calculate the total costs
with the data collected from a typical garments manufacturing company
Limited”. Finally compare the total cost among the three models and
determined the best one for solving APP problem at considered
