Abstract: Second and third shift considerations are important for production planning and scheduling in most manufacturing facilities. A careful literature survey revealed that multiple workshift considerations have not been previously discussed for general aggregate production planning models. In this paper, we propose a mixed integer logic for permitting the opening or closing of second and third shifts of production within a generic model having linear and quadratic cost components. We illustrate the results of the model on a hypothetical data sets. The model permits different costs for opening and closing the extra shifts and provides for a minimum required work force size for the extra shifts.
