This study is to design a linear programming model for optimising the mixtures of flour which comes from different sieve passages in flour mill industry. There are different kinds of flour in the market which have different market prices and each has different properties and used for different purposes. The flour obtained from the sieve passages which can be more than 100 in flour milling factories. The characteristics of flour in each sieve passage are different. The main problem is to find out flour mixture plan from sieve passages of the factory in order to maximise the company sales revenue by taking into account the market demand for flour, market prices of flour, sieve passage flour flows and each sieve passage flour properties. In this study, a linear programming model has been developed to support the decision makers for sieve passage flour mixtures optimisation.
