The purpose of this thesis is to develop and analyse a model for aggregate planning of production. Next, it is explained the steps that will be followed. In the first chapter, I offer an overview of aggregate planning, product mix and workforce planning. Secondly, I have to review the context of the company and understand the data given by the enterprise, with the aim to enrich the knowledge about the parameters and variables which will be included in the model. The third chapter shows a general idea about linear programs and it is described a theoretical model, which will be the basis for the simple model developed after. The fourth task is to propose a mathematical model (linear program) and solution method related to real planning problem faced by the company of study, Bestnet AS. Moreover, the main job is to try to answer the important question of what will be produced and when it will be produced. The method use to solve this task will be Solver Excel. Finally, I will study the results obtained to analysis different scenarios and show possible changes that could affect the initial model. It will be shown different types of analysis and some examples based in the previous model.
