### TRANSPORTATION APPLICATIONS :

TRANSPORTATION APPLICATIONS Maribel Reyes

### Slide 2:

Transportation method Another type of linear programming problem that maybe solve using simplified version of the simplex technique.

### Slide 3:

Objective : to minimize cost of shipping m to n destinations to maximize the profit of shipping m units to n destinations.

### Slide 4:

Ex. Suppose one company has four factories supplying four warehouses and its management wants to determine the minimum-cost shipping schedule for its weekly output of chests

### Slide 5:

Table 1. Data for Transportation Problem

### Slide 6:

3 Steps in solving Transportation Problem: Transportation Matrix Initial Feasible Solution Develop Optimal Solution

### Slide 7:

Transportation Matrix It is important at this step to make sure that the total supply availabilities and total demand requirements are equal.

### Slide 8:

Initial Feasible Solution Initial allocation entails assigning numbers to cells to satisfy supply and demand constraints.

### Slide 9:

Develop Optimal Solution To develop an optimal solution in a transportation problem involves evaluating each unused cell to determine whether a shift into it is advantageous from a total-cost stand point.

### Slide 10:

If it is, the shift is made, and the process is repeated. When all cells have been evaluated and appropriate shifts made, the problem is solved.
