This article describes in details how multicriteria optimization can be applied to solve a typical business problem for resources planning and manufacturing process optimization in a battery factory. We solve the problem by using an interactive software decision support system WebOptim developed at the Institute of information and communication technologies. The entire problem solving process is described step by step in order to point out the problem specific features as well as to demonstrate the capabilities of the WebOptim software system. For comparison, we have solved the same problem by means of another popular decision support system WWW NIMBUS and both solutions are analyzed and discussed.
