Paper Title:
Optimal Policies for Crude Oil Selection
  Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the crude oil selection problem derived from the production of a large typical oil refinery. A deterministic mixed integer programming model for making purchasing decisions in the refinery is proposed in which practical transportation requirements are considered. The objective is to select the varieties of crude oil and determine the purchasing, production and inventory quantities under complicated material-balance constraints and capacity constraints for minimizing the sum of purchasing, order, inventory and transportation costs. A numerical example indicates the extensive application of the presented model.
