Abstract: Goal programming (GP) and its variants are well-known aggregating methodologies for solving multi-objective decision aid processes and they have been widely applied to marketing problems in the last decades. In this paper, we present a fuzzy GP model with integer variables for media planning. The proposed model is applied to a real case study concerning a marketing/media campaign for a mature product in Italy.

Keywords: media planning; fuzzy goal programming; FGP; marketing campaigns; preferences; modelling; media campaigns; mature products; Italy; multicriteria decision making; MCDM; advertising.
