Capacitated transportation problem with bounds on RIM conditions

  title={Capacitated transportation problem with bounds on RIM conditions},
  author={Kalpana Dahiya and Vanita Verma},
  journal={European Journal of Operational Research},
Motivated by dead mileage problem assessed in terms of running empty buses from various depots to starting points, we consider a class of the capacitated transportation problems with bounds on total availabilities at sources and total destination requirements. It is often difficult to solve such problems and the present paper establishes their equivalence with a balanced capacitated transportation problem which can be easily solved by existing methods. Sometimes, total flow in transportation… CONTINUE READING
