At present, the gray system theory has enjoyed immense popularity in the field of economy and management. From gray optimization, gray control to gray prediction, the results of the theory have been paid more and more attention and been applied extensively in the economic development and enterprise management. Aiming at constructing a gray linear programming model based on gray prediction and applying the model to enterprise operation and management, this paper forecasts the future technical progress of the enterprise through gray prediction and verifies the accuracy of the prediction. It is proved that the prediction has a high accuracy, indicating that the gray prediction model is applicable to the forecast of technical level. Besides, this paper establishes a linear programming model to analyze the investment income of different projects in an enterprise, thereby providing the basis for managers to make decisions.
