2 8s-2The Transportation Model CHAPTER 8s The Transportation Model McGraw-Hill/Irwin Operations Management, Eighth Edition, by William J. Stevenson Copyright © 2005 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. All rights reserved.

3 8s-3The Transportation Model Requirements for Transportation Model  List of origins and each one’s capacity  List of destinations and each one’s demand  Unit cost of shipping Note: The DVD that accompanies this book contains a module that provides detailed instruction on the transportation model

4 8s-4The Transportation Model Transportation Model Assumptions 1. Items to be shipped are homogeneous 2. Shipping cost per unit is the same 3. Only one route between origin and destination

7 8s-7The Transportation Model Special Problems  Unequal supply and demand  Dummy: Imaginary number added equal to the difference between supply and demand when these are unequal  Degeneracy: The condition of too few completed cells to allow all necessary paths to be constructed

8 8s-8The Transportation Model Summary of Procedure  Make certain that supply and demand are equal  Develop an initial solution using intuitive, low-cost approach  Check that completed cells = R+C-1  Evaluate each empty cell  Repeat until all cells are zero or positive
