INITIAL BASICFEASIBLE SOLUTION
2.
TRANSPORTATION PROBLEM Transport various quantities of a single homogeneous commodity to different destinations in such a way that total transportation cost is minimum.
3.
TERMINOLOGY USED IN TRANSPORTATIONAL MODELFeasible solution: Non negative values of xij where i=1, 2……….m and j=1, 2,…n whichsatisfy the constraints of supply and demand is called feasible solution.Basic feasible solution: If the no of positive allocations are (m+n-1).Optimal solution: A feasible solution is said to be optimal solution if it minimizes thetotal transportation cost.Balanced transportation problem: A transportation problem in which the total supplyfrom all sources is equal to the total demand in all the destinations.Unbalanced transportation problem: Problems which are not balanced are calledunbalanced.Matrix terminology: In the matrix, the squares are called cells and form columnsvertically and rows horizontally.Degenerate basic feasible solution: If the no. of allocation in basic feasible solutions isless than (m+n-1).

NORTH WEST CORNER METHODMost systematic and easiest method for obtaining initial feasible basic solution
11.
STEPS TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMStep1: construct an empty m*n matrix, completed with rows & columns.Step2: indicate the rows and column totals at the end.Step3: starting with (1,1)cell at the north west corner of the matrix, allocate maximum possible quantitykeeping in view that allocation can neither be more than the quantity required by the respective warehousesnor more than quantity available at the each supply centre.Step 4: adjust the supply and demand nos. in the rows and columns allocations.Step5: if the supply for the first row is exhausted then move down to the first cell in the second row and firstcolumn and go to the step 4.Step 6: if the demand for the first column is satisfied, then move to the next cell in the second column and firstrow and go to step 4.Step 7: if for any cell, supply equals demand then the next allocation can be made in cell either in the nextrow or column.Step 8: continue the procedure until the total available quantity is fully allocated to the cells as required.

Allocate P1W1 max quantity such that itshould not exceed supply/requirement WAREHOUSE W1 W2 W3 SUPPLY PLANT P1 7 6 9 20/0 20 P2 5 7 3 28 P3 4 5 8 17 DEMAND 21/1 25 19 65P1 can supply 20 units at max so W1 can be allocated 20 units only by P1
15.

No. of allocations=No. of rows + No. of columns-1 (For generating optimal solution) WAREHOUSE W1 W2 W3 SUPPLY PLANT P1 7 6 9 20/0 20 P2 5 7 3 28/27/0 1 25 2 P3 4 5 8 17/0 17 DEMAND 21/1/0 25/0 19/17/0 65 Here no. of rows=3, no. of columns=3, total allocations=5 5=3+3-1
19.
LEAST COST ENTRY METHOD This method takes into consideration the lowest cost and therefore takes less time to solve the problem
20.
STEPS TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM• Step1: select the cell with the lowest transportation cost among all the rows and columns of the transportation table. If the minimum cost is not unique then select arbitrarily any cell with the lowest cost.• Step2: allocate as many units as possible to the cell determined in step 1 and eliminate that row in which either capacity or requirement is exhausted.• Step3:adjust the capacity and the requirement for the next allocations.• Step4: repeat the steps1to3 for the reduced table until the entire capacities are exhausted to fill the requirements at the different destinations.

Find out the cell having least cost WAREHOUSE W1 W2 W3 SUPPLYPLANTP1 7 6 9 20P2 5 7 3 28/9 19P3 4 5 8 17DEMAND 21 25 19/0 65P2W3 is having least cost i.e. 3 so it is allocated 19 units as per the requirement of W3

In this way allocate next minimum costs until all requirements are fulfilled WAREHOUSE W1 W2 W3 SUPPLY PLANT P1 7 6 9 20/0 20 P2 5 7 3 28/9/5/0 4 5 19 P3 4 5 8 17/0 17 DEMAND 21/4/0 25/5/0 19/0 65 Now P2W1 and P3W2 are having same cost, we can allocate any of them but in this case P2W1 will beallocated because in P3W2 P3 cant supply anymore units

TRANSPORTATION PROBLEM Categorized into two types: Minimization Maximization problem problem
31.
MINIMIZATION PROBLEM In this transportation cost is given which is to be minimized.
32.
MAXIMIZATION PROBLEM In this profit is given which is to be maximized.To solve this problem we convert the problem into minimization.Conversion is done by selecting the largest element from Profit Pay off matrix and then subtracting all elements from largest element including itself. Reduced matrix obtain becomes minimization case and then same steps are taken to solve it as is done in minimization problem
33.
VOGEL’S APPROXIMATION METHOD• BASIS OF ALLOCATION IS UNIT COST PENALTY• THE SUBSEQUENT ALLOCATIONS IN CELLS ARE DONE KEEPING IN VIEW THE HIGHEST UNIT COST• IBFS OBATINED BY THIS METHOD IS EITHER OPTIMAL OR VERY NEAR TO OPTIMAL SOLUTION• SO AMOUNT OF TIME REQUIRED TO CALCULATE THE OPTIMUM SOLUTION IS REDUCED
34.
STEPS TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMStep1: for each row of the table identify the lowest and the next lowest cost cell. Find their least cost than the difference shall be zero.Step 2: similarly find the difference of each column and place it below each column. These differences found in the steps 1 and 2 are also called penalties.Step 3: looking at all the penalties. Identify the highest of them and the row or column relative to that penalty. Allocate the maximum possible units to the least cost cell in the selected row or column. Ties should be broken in this orderMaximum difference least cost cell.Maximum difference tie least cost cellMaximum unit’s allocations tie arbitraryStep 4: adjust the supply and demand and cross the satisfied row or column.Step 5:Recompute the column and row differences ignoring deleted rows/columns and go to the step3. Repeat the procedure until the entire column and row totals are satisfied.
