The positive or negative outcome that a firm experiences, depends mostly on the ability of making appropriate decision. The particular area of this research interest is, however, relies on the application of linear programming techniques for textile dyed fabrics to create efficient resource utilization mechanism for textile sector to improve their resource utilization and profitability, taking one of the textile share company as a case study. This share company produces eight textile finished dyed fabrics. The monthly availability of resources utilized to produce all of textile dyed fabrics, and the total cost per meter of fabric of each products have been collected from the case company. The data gathered was mathematically modeled using a linear programming technique which is a practical analysis process and a holistic decision support tool, and solved using Microsoft-Excel solver. Since linear programming offer many advantages to managers in allocating avail resources to their optimal use and in pointing out the economies of underemployed resources, the computational study of the approaches makes them to provide faster decision on the type and amount of textile dyed fabrics to be produced that yield more income than strategies obtained from trial and error methods with production quantity and gross income of the company can be improved by 72.63% and 65.91% respectively.
