  In this paper, a multistage production planning model has been developed for Tanin-Peak Sabalan Company in Ardabil city of Iran. Subjected to different constraints, objective function of the model can minimize the total cost or maximize the total benefit. This company receives the order of different products at random times. Then, the production department of the company starts producing the orders but they don’t know if they can provide the orders in due dates. When we face with such a case, we will try to define the bottle neck and solve the problem using suitable methods. By means of this model, three past orders of the company have been evaluated.
