Identifying, analyzing and using the most appropriate and efficient methods for planning business processes is a key to success for every enterprise.
Our paper are two objectives: to identify the most proper methods used for planning and applying for the same case study. We are looking to demonstrate the methodology of using some software tools and compare the obtained results. The application domain will be the planning of production processes but these methods can be extended to the service processes.
The methodology is represented by the mathematical models and software applications in this fields, such as Simplex model theory, Solver Excel tools, WinQSE application, linear programming with PL.exe.
The results of the research have a high applicability level and can be extended in other business fields too.

In the present work, the authors aim to determine the efficiency of the macroeconomic policies by determining the effects of the application of the instruments (revenue change) and finding out the instrument having the highest efficiency.
In today’s macroeconomic theory and practice, the efficiency level of the macroeconomic policy instrument is measured using multipliers. The different nature of the measurement units used when calculating the multipliers makes it impossible to compare the multipliers in order to establish the more efficient instrument, and for this reason it becomes necessary to use elasticity as an efficiency indicator.

Kuklinski (Kuklinski A. 1987), realized, from an epistemological perspective, a history of the international and interdisciplinary progress in matters of regional policy.
According to the authors’ conception, an international scientific movement in the domain of regional studies refers to: the examination of the regional studies carried out in different countries to identify the diversity of ideological and intellectual attitudes, the techniques and the motivations.
Today this phenomenon must be considered from a new perspective in the framework of a global analysis of the different scientific schools which perceive regional studies in particular and original ways.
A scientific school can be defined as all the activities of a well-organized team, capable of producing, in the course of a long period, a series of relatively important and diversified innovations in three domains:
a)theory and research methods;
b)empirical knowledge of the existing reality;
c)creation of tools and policies in order to transform this reality according to the development goals accepted by a determined epoch and in a determined region.
The main feature of a scientific school is represented by its capacity to innovate a series of theoretical and empirical studies (Kuklinski A. 1987).

Fast and continuous development of the low cost airlines is due to the low prices that have attracted more and more clients. These companies react to the market conditions and search to develop their operating fields towards areas with high potential. Low cost operators are very dynamic meaning that they continuously develop not only their network but also their price strategy. Competition in aerial transport is very tight especially because of low cost lines that attract customers with low charges for the consumers who do not want to invest a lot of money in a plane ticket.
Airlines industry in Europe is continuously adapted to the reality and conditions of the low cost airlines that consists of most European customers and constantly increase their market.

In fact, it is found that the information domain has known divergence over time, significantly in practice. Therefore, it is not surprising that the academic recommendations are rarely adopted by practitioners in response to this problem, so it is suggested in the future a turn towards the practice.
