1 Network Models Chapter 4

2 For a given network find the path of minimum distance, time, or cost from a starting point, the start node, to a destination, the terminal node. Problem definition –There are n nodes, beginning with start node 1 and ending with terminal node n. –Bi-directional arcs connect connected nodes i and j with nonnegative distances, d ij –Find the path of minimum total distance that connects node 1 to node n. 4.5 The Shortest Path Model

For example, in Boise (node 4): X 14 + X 34 = X 47. Subject to the following constraints: Non-negativity constraints

8 The Dijkstra’s algorithm: –Find the shortest distance from the “START” to each other node, in the order of the closet nodes to the “START”. –Once the shortest route to the m closest node is determined, the (m+1) closest can be easily determined. –This algorithm finds the shortest route from the start to all the nodes in the network. FAIRWAY VAN LINES – The Network Model

9 An illustration of the Dijkstra’s algorithm (See mathematical formulation of the algorithm in Supplement CD 5).

11 Dijkstra’s algorithm - continued When all the network is covered, the shortest route from START to every other node can be identified. Trace the path that leads to each node by backtracking from each node toward node START.

12 Problem definition –There is a source node (labeled 1), from which the network flow emanates. –There is a terminal node (labeled n), into which all network flow is eventually deposited. –There are n - 2 intermediate nodes (labeled 2, 3,…,n-1), where the node inflow is equal to the node outflow. –There are capacities C ij for flow on the arc from node i to node j, and capacities C ji for the opposite direction. 4.6 The Maximal Flow Problem

13 The objective is to find the maximum total flow out of node 1 that can flow into node n without exceeding the capacities on the arcs. The Maximal Flow Problem Objective

14 United Chemical produces pesticides and lawn care products. Poisonous chemicals needed for the production process are held in a huge drum. A network of pipes and valves regulates the chemical flow from the drum to different production areas. The safety division must plan a procedure to empty the drum as fast as possible into a safety tub in the disposal area, using a network of pipes and valves. UNITED CHEMICAL COMPANY

15 The plan must determine: which valves to open and shut What is the estimated time for total discharge UNITED CHEMICAL COMPANY

18 Decision variables X ij - the flow from node i to node j on the arc that connects these two nodes Objective function – Maximize the flow out of node 1: Max X 12 + X 13 UNITED CHEMICAL COMPANY – The Linear Programming Model

19 Constraints –The constraint on each intermediate node is: Flow out from the node – flow into the node = 0 Node 2: X23 +X24 + X26 - X12 - X32= 0 Node 3: X32 +X35 + X36 - X13 - X23 - X63 = 0 Node 4: X46 + X47 - X24 - X64 = 0 Node 5: X56 + X57 - X35 - X65 = 0 Node 6: X63 +X64 +X65 + X67 - X26 - X36 - X46 -X56= 0 UNITED CHEMICAL COMPANY – The Linear Programming Model 2

23 4.7 The Traveling Salesman Problem Problem definition –There are m nodes. –Unit cost C ij is associated with utilizing arc (i,j) –Find the cycle that minimizes the total cost required to visit all the nodes exactly once.

24 The Traveling Salesman Problem Importance: –Variety of scheduling application can be solved as a traveling salesmen problem. –Examples : Ordering drill position on a drill press. School bus routing. Military bombing sorties. –The problem has theoretical importance because it represents a class of difficult problems known as NP-hard problems.

25 The Traveling Salesman Problem Complexity Both writing the mathematical model and solving it are cumbersome (a problem with 20 cities requires over 500,000 linear constraints.)

26 THE FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY A visit must be made to four local offices of FEMA, going out from and returning to the same main office in Northridge, Southern California. Data Travel time between offices (minutes)

29 FEMA - Traveling Salesman Solution approaches –Enumeration of all possible cycles. This results in (m-1)! cycles to enumerate. Only small problems can be solved with this approach. –A combination of the Assignment problem and the Branch and Bound technique. Problem with up to m=20 nodes can be efficiently solved with this approach.

Symmetrical problems need to enumerate only (m-1)! / 2 cycles. FEMA – full enumeration

32 Refer to the nodes designated “From” as “Workers” nodes. Refer to nodes designated by “To” as “Jobs” nodes. Assign “Workers” to “Jobs” at minimum cost. FEMA – The Assignment problem approach

35 We can prevent the situation of sub-tours by adding certain constraints. This makes the problem extremely large. Another approach, that combines the Assignment model with the Branch and Bound solution methodology can efficiently solve problems up to m = 20 nodes. FEMA – The assignment solution

36 4.8 The Minimal Spanning Tree This problem arises when all the nodes of a given network must be connected to one another, without any loop. The minimal spanning tree approach is appropriate for problems for which redundancy is expensive, or the flow along the arcs is considered instantaneous.

37 THE METROPOLITAN TRANSIT DISTRICT

38 THE METROPOLITAN TRANSIT DISTRICT The City of Vancouver is planning the development of a new light rail transportation system. The system should link 8 residential and commercial centers. The Metropolitan Transit District needs to select the set of lines that will connect all the centers at a minimum total cost.

39 METROPOLITAN TRANSIT – Network presentation The network describes: – feasible lines that have been drafted – minimum possible cost for taxpayers per line.

42 Solution - a network approach (See Supplement CD 5) The algorithm that solves this problem is a very trivial greedy procedure. Two versions of the algorithm are described. The algorithm – version 1: –Start by selecting the smallest arc, and adding it to a set of selected arcs (currently contains only the first arc). –At each iteration, add the next smallest arc to the set of selected arcs, unless it forms a cycle. –Finish when all nodes are connected. THE METROPOLITAN TRANSIT DISTRICT

43 The algorithm – version 2: –Start by selecting the smallest arc creating the set of connected arcs. –At each iteration add the smallest unselected arc that has a connection to the connected set, but do not create a cycle. –Finish when all nodes are connected See demonstration of version 2 next THE METROPOLITAN TRANSIT DISTRICT
