Develop an initial solution to atransportation models with thenorthwest-corner and intuitivelowest-cost methods2. Solve a problem with the stepping-stone method3. Balance a transportation problem4. Solve a problem with degeneracy

C - 9© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice HallNorthwest-Corner Rule Start in the upper left-hand cell (ornorthwest corner) of the table and allocateunits to shipping routes as follows:1. Exhaust the supply (factory capacity) of eachrow before moving down to the next row2. Exhaust the (warehouse) requirements ofeach column before moving to the nextcolumn3. Check to ensure that all supplies anddemands are met

Assign 200 tubs from Evansville to Albuquerque(exhausting Albuquerque’s demand)3. Assign 100 tubs from Evansville to Boston(exhausting Evansville’s supply)4. Assign 100 tubs from Fort Lauderdale to Boston(exhausting Boston’s demand)5. Assign 200 tubs from Fort Lauderdale toCleveland (exhausting Cleveland’s demand andFort Lauderdale’s supply)

- 13. C - 13© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice HallIntuitive Lowest-Cost Method1. Identify the cell with the lowest cost2. Allocate as many units as possible tothat cell without exceeding supply ordemand; then cross out the row orcolumn (or both) that is exhausted bythis assignment3. Find the cell with the lowest cost fromthe remaining cells4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until all unitshave been allocated

- 20. C - 20© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice HallStepping-Stone Method1. Select any unused square to evaluate2. Beginning at this square, trace aclosed path back to the original squarevia squares that are currently beingused3. Beginning with a plus (+) sign at theunused corner, place alternate minusand plus signs at each corner of thepath just traced
- 21. C - 21© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice HallStepping-Stone Method4. Calculate an improvement index byfirst adding the unit-cost figures foundin each square containing a plus signand subtracting the unit costs in eachsquare containing a minus sign5. Repeat steps 1 though 4 until you havecalculated an improvement index forall unused squares. If all indices are ≥0, you have reached an optimalsolution.

- 25. C - 25© 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. publishing as Prentice HallStepping-Stone Method1. If an improvement is possible, choosethe route (unused square) with thelargest negative improvement index2. On the closed path for that route,select the smallest number found inthe squares containing minus signs3. Add this number to all squares on theclosed path with plus signs andsubtract it from all squares with aminus sign
