Abstract: When market demand significantly changes, as in the ongoing worldwide economic crisis, many production plants are forced to operate far from nominal conditions. In this case, the current plant-wide optimization of production sites is a myopic approach that could lead to plant inefficiencies and unconventional operation issues, thus, resulting in ineffective prevention of economic losses. A way to tackle low-demand conditions is to raise the decision-making process from the plant-wide (or business-wide) level to the enterprise-wide (or corporate) level by assigning a Boolean variable to each production site so as to manage their on/off status. By doing so, certain additional (social) constraints may become relevant. The case of operating industrial gases supply chains is considered. © 2012 American Institute of Chemical Engineers.
