Abstract: Worldwide there is a diversity of problems arising from responding to social and economic needs, which need to be resolved. Particularly speaking, a country's economy is largely based on what the manufacturing and services industry produces and distributes. Mexico is no exception, being within the G20 group (industrialized and emerging countries) leads to the need to train human resources capable of solving these problems. This conference will discuss how some of these problems can be modeled mathematically in the search to find an efficient solution to them.
