• NEW APPROACH TO SOLVE UNBALANCED TRANSPORTATION PROBLEMS USING VOGELS APPROXIMATION METHOD

A. SRIDHAR*, R. ALLAH PITCHAI

Abstract


Transportation problem (TP) is considered a vitally important aspect that has been studied in a wide range of operations including research domains. As such, it has been used in simulation of several real life problems. Thus, optimizing TP of variables has been remarkably significant to various disciplines. This paper suggests a heuristic approach in order to balance the unbalanced TP and improve the Vogel’s Approximation Method (VAM) in order to get improved (sometimes) initial solution of unbalanced TP in comparison to usual VAM.


Keywords


Transportation Problem, Vogel’s Approximation Method, Discounts and Schemes, Overtime.
