A recurring problem in the industry is to determine the order of machines to be used inÂ production in order to get optimal results. The method used to solve this problem is by using aÂ model of Budgeting Capital from Dynamic Programming. With this model each phase of theÂ process may be called a stage and each machine is considered as a state, where each stage and theÂ state have a mutual relationship as a whole. The model resulted is the following order of theÂ machines, the granulator to process Meshing, Drum Rotator for Mixing, Reynold for WetÂ Granulation, Static Oven for Drying, Killian RUZS for Compressing and for the coating processÂ Accelacota 48" is used. Total time used for the process is 1445 minute with a time saving of 805Â minutes. The time savings enables the company to reduce production costs of machinery and wageÂ labor costs, therefore iti si recommended that this optimal order machinery is applied in theÂ production of Depakote in the future.
