Sample app solves the optimal production plan by [production line]/[plant]/[SKU] by each week and optimizes on service level & profit (minimizing lost sales).
Configurable Constraints & Considerations
Production not sourced by plant is considered as lost sales
Objective function attempts to minimize the total lost sales value
Optimal plans guarantees feasibility (line capacity and warehouse capacity)
