Abstract


In this paper, a new method (ASM-Method) of finding an optimal solution for transportation problems is implemented. The method finds an optimal solution without requiring an initial basic feasible solution. A numerical illustration of the method is implemented and the result obtained is compared with that of a designed LINGO computer program for transportation problems.The most attractive feature of this method is that it does not require complex arithmetic and logical calculations which makes it easy to understand and use. The method can be of good for decision makers who are dealing with problems of supply chains and inventory. The method can thus be adopted on existing transportation problems.

Author Keywords: ASM-Method, Optimality, Lingo, Transportation problems.
