Production planning has an important role in the company's business processes. A company engaged in the manufacture of intermediate gear parts has a problem in optimizing its production system. The production planning system that occurs is still based on predictions from decision-makers. This study aims to optimize the production planning system to maximize the 15T intermediate gear spare parts' production capacity and the 30T intermediate gear spare parts. Optimization of production planning uses the fuzzy goal programming method to optimize objectives based on existing constraints such as working hours, profit tolerance values, and demand tolerance values. The results showed that the use of fuzzy goal programming was able to increase the production level by 2.765, with an increase in profit of 2.57%. Fuzzy goal programming implementation provides an optimal solution in increasing profits in accordance with company goals based on the constraints that occur.
