Emphasis is given to developing a schedule for the short run that will perform well over a range of plausible future conditions. The method merges linear programming formulations for specific scenarios describing the future. Separate schedules are determined for each scenario with the added requirement that all of the schedules are identical for the short run. This formulation is shown to be a simplified form of the multistage recourse problem as described by Dantzig (1963). The solution technique developed by Hoganson and Rose (1984) is proposed as a possible solution technique. A large-scale example is given, and results are examined to consider how methods might be refined to better deal with uncertainty.-from Authors
