   Planning the production of toy lorrys
   (c) 2008 Fair Isaac Corporation
       author: S. Heipcke, Mar. 2002

model "C-3 Toy production"
 uses "mmxprs"

  ITEMS: set of string                 ! Set of all products
  FINAL: set of string                 ! Set of final products
  ASMBL: set of string                 ! Set of assembled products
  PREPROD: set of string               ! Set of preproducts

  CAP: array(ASMBL) of integer         ! Capacity of assembly lines
  DEM: array(FINAL) of integer         ! Demand of lorrys
  CPROD: array(ASMBL) of real          ! Assembly costs
  CBUY: array(ITEMS) of real           ! Purchase costs
  REQ: array(ASMBL,PREPROD) of integer ! Items req. for assembling a product

 initializations from 'c3toy.dat'

 finalize(ASMBL); finalize(PREPROD); finalize(FINAL); finalize(ITEMS)

  produce: array(ASMBL) of mpvar       ! Quantity of items produced
  buy: array(PREPROD) of mpvar         ! Quantity of items bought

! Objective: total costs
 Cost:= sum(p in PREPROD) CBUY(p)*buy(p) + 
         sum(p in ASMBL) CPROD(p)*produce(p)

! Satisfy demands
 forall(p in FINAL) produce(p) >= DEM(p)

! Assembly balance
 forall(p in PREPROD) buy(p) + if(p in ASMBL, produce(p), 0) >= 
                       sum(q in ASMBL) REQ(q,p)*produce(q)

! Limits on assembly capacity
 forall(p in ASMBL) produce(p) <= CAP(p)

 forall(p in PREPROD) buy(p) is_integer
 forall(p in ASMBL) produce(p) is_integer

! Solve the problem
! Solution printing
 writeln("Total cost: ",getobjval)
 forall(p in PREPROD)
  writeln("  ", strfmt(p,-18), ": ", strfmt(getsol(buy(p)),5)) 
 forall(p in ASMBL)
  writeln("  ", strfmt(p,-18), ": ", strfmt(getsol(produce(p)),5))
