2
Transportation, Transshipment, and Assignment Problems n A network model is one which can be represented by a set of nodes, a set of arcs, and functions (e.g. costs, supplies, demands, etc.) associated with the arcs and/or nodes. n Transportation, transshipment, assignment, shortest-route, and maximal flow problems of this chapter as well as the PERT/CPM problems (in Chapter 13) are all examples of network problems.

3
Transportation, Transshipment, and Assignment Problems n Each of the problems of this chapter can be formulated as linear programs and solved by general purpose linear programming codes. n For each of the problems, if the right-hand side of the linear programming formulations are all integers, the optimal solution will be in terms of integer values for the decision variables. n However, there are many computer packages that contain separate computer codes for these problems which take advantage of their network structure.

4
Supply Chain Models n A supply chain describes the set of all interconnected resources involved in producing and distributing a product. n In general, supply chains are designed to satisfy customer demand for a product at minimum cost. n Those that control the supply chain must make decisions such as where to produce a product, how much should be produced, and where it should be sent.

5
Transportation Problem n The transportation problem seeks to minimize the total shipping costs of transporting goods from m origins (each with a supply s i ) to n destinations (each with a demand d j ), when the unit shipping cost from an origin, i, to a destination, j, is c ij. n The network representation for a transportation problem with two sources and three destinations is given on the next slide.

Remove the corresponding decision variable. Transportation Problem No modification of LP formulation is necessary.

Transshipment Problem n Transshipment problems are transportation problems in which a shipment may move through intermediate nodes (transshipment nodes) before reaching a particular destination node. n Transshipment problems can be converted to larger transportation problems and solved by a special transportation program. n Transshipment problems can also be solved by general purpose linear programming codes. n The network representation for a transshipment problem with two sources, three intermediate nodes, and two destinations is shown on the next slide.

The Northside and Southside facilities of Zeron Industries supply three firms (Zrox, Hewes, Rockrite) with customized shelving for its offices. They both order shelving from the same two manufacturers, Arnold Manufacturers and Supershelf, Inc. Currently weekly demands by the users are 50 for Zrox, 60 for Hewes, and 40 for Rockrite. Both Arnold and Supershelf can supply at most 75 units to its customers. Additional data is shown on the next slide. Transshipment Problem: Example
