Trace a closed path back to the original square via squares that are currently being used (only horizontal or vertical moves allowed) ® Place + in unused square; alternate - and + on each corner square of the closed path ¯ Calculate improvement index: add together the unit cost figures found in each square containing a +; subtract the unit cost figure in each square containing a -. ° Repeat steps 1-4 for each unused square

Arbitrarily break any ties for the lowest cost. Á Allocate as many units as possible to that cell without exceeding the supply or demand. Then cross out that row or column (or both) that is exhausted by this assignment. Â Find the cell with the lowest cost from the remaining cells. Ã Repeat steps 2 & 3 until all units have been allocated.
