Live online course – 8 December 2021.
Being the world's second largest palm oil producer, Malaysia has a wide range of palm biomass sources generated as by-products from its oil palm industry. These palm biomass resources should be better utilised in order to maximise their potential as high value-added products.
This hands-on workshop will present a simple optimisation technique based on a linear programme (LP) model. The model aims to determine the optimum allocation of palm biomass among its sources (ie supplier) and sinks (ie clients) in a palm biomass supply chain problem. Different objectives may be set in the LP model depending on the goal of the different stakeholders, eg supplier, client, government agency, etc.
The workshop will help you to understand how to:
- optimise the palm biomass supply chain
- maximise profit
- minimise transportation cost
- minimise CO2 emission palm biomass allocation
Who should attend
- Palm oil mill owners
- Members of the Palm Oil Processing Special Interest Group
- Supply chain planners
- Introduction to optimisation
- Superstructural-based approach
- Biomass supply chain optimisation
Please note: you will need access to a laptop with MS Excel (with Solver installed).
