Discussion question: production planning at chevron

Answer the question with citation and reference No Plagiarism. I attached the case Chevron, No more the 400 words.


– The opening “Q.M in Action” vignette in Chapter 8 of the textbook discusses how Chevron uses a linear programming tool and sensitivity analysis to plan refinery operations and to improve profitability. As a manager you will be required to analyze situations quantitatively to minimize costs or maximize profit.

What other considerations might a manager at Chevron have to account for while planning production in such a complex environment?
