A presentation of the possibility of using hierarchical optimization algorithms within practical systems for computer assisted production control is intended. It is shown how an optimization problem can be formulated in order to cope with the multiple objectives of the system. A practical large example is given. A computer package which uses multilevel algorithms is described.
