Application The Linear Programming According To Transportation Problem On Real Data

[Full Text]



Zainb hassan radthy; Firas Hussean Maghool; Alaa Hussein Khaleel



the transportation problem, the minimum cell cost method, Vogel’s approximate method, the stepping -stone method, a new technique.



In this paper, the transport models were applied on a real data, which was drawn from a domestic company for food products. The company aims to market its product to four different geographic positions through three of its branches. Therefore, the company has suffered from the high cost of transporting and marketing its products. The company does not has scientific approach to face this problem. Instead, it has depended upon the personal experience of staffs. The target of this paper is to satisfy minimum transporting cost through three methods, the minimum cell cost method, Vogel approximate method and compare between these methods with a new technique for finding initial basic solution. Then, the obtained solutions should be assessed by using the stepping – stone test in order to obtain the optimum transporting method.
