- 1. Transportation ProblemTransportation Problem • The Transportation Model • Solution of a Transportation Problem •North west corner solution • Least cost solution
- 2. The Transportation Model CharacteristicsThe Transportation Model Characteristics • A product is transported from a number of sources to a number of destinations at the minimum possible cost. • Each source is able to supply a fixed number of units of the product, and each destination has a fixed demand for the product. • The linear programming model has constraints for supply at each source and demand at each destination. • All constraints are equalities in a balanced transportation model where supply equals demand. • Constraints contain inequalities in unbalanced models where supply does not equal demand.

- 7. Solution of the Transportation ModelSolution of the Transportation Model Tableau FormatTableau Format • Transportation problems are solved manually within a tableau format. • Each cell in a transportation tableau is analogous to a decision variable that indicates the amount allocated from a source to a destination. The Transportation Tableau
- 8. Solution of the Transportation ModelSolution of the Transportation Model Solution MethodsSolution Methods • Transportation models do not start at the origin where all decision values are zero; they must instead be given an initial feasible solution. • Initial feasible solution determination methods include: - northwest corner method - Lowest cost method - Vogel’s Approximation Method • Methods for solving the transportation problem itself include: - Transportation Algorithm.
