Chapter 6: Transportation, Assignment, and Transshipment Problems 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. Examples include transportation, assignment, transshipment as well as shortest-route, maximal flow problems, minimal spanning tree and PERT/CPM problems. All network problems can be formulated as linear programs. However, there are many computer packages that contain separate computer codes for these problems which take advantage of their network structure. If the right-hand side of the linear programming formulations are all integers, then optimal solution of the decision variables will also be integers.

Transportation Problem 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. The network representation for a transportation problem with two sources and three destinations is given on the next slide.

Example: Transportation Problem The Navy has depots in Albany, BenSalem, and Winchester. Each of these three depots has 3,000 pounds of materials which the Navy wishes to ship to three installations, namely, San Diego, Norfolk, and Pensacola. These installations require 4,000, 2,500, and 2,500 pounds, respectively. The shipping costs per pound for are shown on the next slide. Formulate and solve a linear program to determine the shipping arrangements that will minimize the total shipping cost.

Assignment Problem An assignment problem seeks to minimize the total cost assignment of m workers to m jobs, given that the cost of worker i performing job j is c ij. It assumes all workers are assigned and each job is performed. An assignment problem is a special case of a transportation problem in which all supplies and all demands are equal to 1; hence assignment problems may be solved as linear programs. The network representation of an assignment problem with three workers and three jobs is shown on the next slide.

Transshipment Problem Transshipment problems are transportation problems in which a shipment may move through intermediate nodes (transshipment nodes)before reaching a particular destination node. Transshipment problems can be converted to larger transportation problems and solved by a special transportation program. Transshipment problems can also be solved by general purpose linear programming codes. 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
