|Abstract:||In this paper we consider the problem of minimizing the waste of textile material in a Portuguese home textile manufacturing company. The company has a vertical structure covering the different production stages of the home textile, from weaving until the finished products. Production planning comprises different decisions: the definition of the widths and lengths of the fabric rolls to be produced, the number of fabric rolls to be used from stock or purchased and the definition of the cutting patterns to be applied to each width of the fabric roll, so that the waste is minimized. We propose a MIP model, solved by a column generation method, to tackle the problem.|
