Abstract
As in other forest systems, forest management in industrial forest plantations is also divided into two hierarchical planning levels: strategic and tactical. Thus, we have strategic planning concerning basically with the maintenance of timber flow over a long period of time, while tactical planning concerns with short term harvest scheduling, by considering spatial considerations and production costs. These levels are strongly connected due to the short planning horizons and the intensive management planned in these plantations. However, the hierarchical idea according to the strategic solution is the ideal point in tactical planning seems not be optimal in these industrial plantations. Using a case study in Brazil, we have developed a multi-criteria decision making model in order to minimize the discrepancies between the two hierarchical levels. In short, an extended goal programming model, which takes into account several criteria belonging to both planning levels, has been defined with the help of diverse optimization modeling languages like Pyomo. Our findings s showed that the results obtained provide better solutions than the traditional hierarchical approach
