• SOLUTION OF TRANSPORTATION PROBLEMS USING SUMMATION METHOD

A. SRIDHAR*, R. S. SUGANTHI

Abstract


Transportation problem (TP) is considered a dynamic 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 new approach to improve the Initial Basic Feasible Solution (IBFS) of all types TPs using row summation and column summation.  This approach improves the Vogel’s Approximation Method (VAM) in order to get improved (sometimes) IBFS of an unbalanced TP in comparison to usual VAM.


Keywords
