This paper models a crisp Linear Programming (LP) as a Compromise Fuzzy Multi-Objective LP (CFMOLP). The application of CFMOLP has been focused on an industrial engineering problem that seeks profit maximisation by optimising product-mix. Imprecision of the large volume of industrial data and the conglomerated decision from all levels of management lead fuzzication of the identified constraints and the objective functions as well. The crisp model described is in the form of crisp-Multi-Objective Linear Programming (MOLP) with objective functions, functional constraints and non-negativity constraints. This model is formulated as a fuzzy-MOLP and subsequently converted into an equivalent compromise-MOLP model. The paper describes the development process for the CFMOLP model and its application along with appropriate interpretation.
