Abstract:

This paper is concerned with a simplified version of a hypothetical representative thermal cracking refinery scheduling problem. It was possible to convert into the language of linear programming an engineering analysis that had originally involved numerous non-linearities. The mathematical analysis does not eliminate the fundamental uncertainties facing an oil company but the scheduling calculations do enable the refinery people to present the executive group with a detailed program for dealing with each of several possible contingencies.
