Production planning of fish processed product under uncertainty

Herman Mawengkang


Marine fisheries play an important role in the economic development of Indonesia. Besides being the most affordable source of animal protein in the diet of most people in the country, this industrial sector could provide employment to thousands who live at coastal area. We consider the management of small scale traditional business at North Sumatera Province which processes fish into several local seafood products. The inherent uncertainty of data (for example, demand and fish availability), together with the sequential evolution of data over time leads the production planning problem to be a linear mixed-integer stochastic program. We use a scenario generation based approach for solving the model. The result shows the amount of each fish processed product and the number of workforce needed in each horizon planning.
