— Order acceptance in make-to-order industry is critical because the high variety among orders. Decision whether to accept or reject an order depend on several factors such as resources capacity and potential profit of each order. In this research, a heuristic order acceptance model has been developed to support quick decision making for order acceptance. The heuristic approach is conducted due to unreasonable computation time of analytical approach. Numerical example is elaborated in the paper for a case study at a make-to-order industry manufacturing mold and dies. The proposed model results in a reasonable computational time while having a near optimum solution.
