This paper presents a model for an n-stage multiproduct investment program. The problem of finding an "optimal" investment program is of great interest in industry. Given a probabilistic estimate of future product(s) demand, we seek an optimum within a set of alternatives open to us. By the optimum we mean the minimum-minimorum of the total expected costs. The minimal cost and precise timing of the n stages are obtained by solving a set of functional equations using a combination of the recursive technique of dynamic programming and numerical methods.
