A company produces two different products. One of them needs 1/4 of an hour of
assembly work per unit, 1/8 of an hour in quality control work and Rs1.2 in raw
materials. The other product requires 1/3 of an hour of assembly work per unit,
1/3 of an hour in quality control work and Rs 0.9 in raw materials. Given the
current availability of staff in the company, each day there is at most a total of 90
hours available for assembly and 80 hours for quality control. The first product
described has a market value (sale price) of Rs 9 per unit and the second product
described has a market value (sale price) of Rs 8 per unit. In addition, the
maximum amount of daily sales for the first product is estimated to be 200 units,
without there being a maximum limit of daily sales for the second product.
