The aim of the research is to explore all capabilities and requirements aimed at developing small and medium industrial enterprises existing in the Kurdistan region, with the aim of raising the competitiveness of these projects and achieving the main goal of them, which is to establish a pioneering and advanced industrial base that accommodates the great material and human potential available in it. In order to reach this goal, the research dealt with ways to maximize the production of different types of doors, as it is one of the important small industries in the region on which many construction and reconstruction works depend on which a certain percentage of workers and investors depend. The issue of maximizing production is linked to more comprehensive issues related to the use of programming techniques. Perhaps linear programming is the best method for achieving these goals as a mathematical method used for the purposes of planning and making the best decision from among a group of alternatives proposed in using the available resources in an effort to increase the profit associated with increasing and maximizing production, as well as reducing the cost value to the lowest possible level in light of the limited resources available. . We can also describe it as a very important method to support the decision maker and enable him to make the best and correct decision based on scientific methods.
Among the different methods and methods of linear programming, the Simplex Method was used as the most appropriate way to reach the desired goal in light of the multiplicity of productive activities, which are the different types of doors (regular, tin, DMF) that are produced by the Mustafa factory located in the governorate of Dohuk, which was chosen As an applied model, in addition to the clarity of the linear relationship that links the variables that make up production and profits in such productive projects. The Win Qsb software package has been used in the analysis that includes different types of programming tools, including linear programming. The value for maximizing profits was in the production of DMF doors and its value (($ 73.8667), and the lowest value for maximizing profits was $ 39.4667), and it was in the production of regular doors. Among the most important reasons that have been diagnosed as the causes of the weakness of the local product are: (1) The entry of quantities of doors imported from outside the region, especially after the year 2003, and their sale at prices less than large The loss of the local product made it unable to continue in some sectors of production in the region, (2) the weakness of the material base for the growth of small local industries, including the door industry, and the state’s inability to support this vital sector, which made it unable to continue production, (3) interruption National Electricity and the great rise in the prices of petroleum products led to high production costs and made them unable to compete with the importer. This was reflected in the instability of the prices of the local product, unlike the prices of the imported ones.
