Production in large quantities of different varieties of products creates issues in finding an optimal planning solution. Adhesive tapes companies face that challenge. A multi-phased methodology is proposed to minimize production costs. In this it is considered different production variables. First phase divided a problem into subproblems to minimize computational complexity through an incidence matrix. Second phase formulated a linear programming model to determine production optimal batch sizes. Consequently, model is applied in a real company. Results showed a decrease in production costs in a range of 14%-43% for the different manufactured groups of components. In this way it is expected that more companies can apply similar models to improve their production indicators.
