This paper represents an approach of using simulation models and genetic algorithms for generating an aggregative production plan to maximize the total profit of the firm. The described methodology provides a tool which assists the company management in decision which of the suitable solutions will become the production plan. The entire system is composed by a business information system - a database, a simulation model and a genetic algorithm. The purpose of the integrated system is to help operative management personnel to take decisions with respect to long-term production planning and marketing strategies.
