Abstract

This article shows how fuzzy linear programming may be used to solve production scheduling problem in coal industry. First, a fuzzy linear programming model is presented. The proposed model is then tested on a hypothetical problem developed by using production cost estimates from independent coal mines in the states of Virginia, Illinois and Pennsylvania. The results of the model indicate that the model has potential for solving production scheduling problems in the coal industry.
