Issue Date: 13-Apr-2016
Abstract: The transportation problem is a special class of the linear programming problem. It deals with the situation in which a commodity is transported from source to destinations. The proposed transportation model of manufacturing good to customers (key distributors) is considered in this research. The data gathered were modelled as a linear programming model of transportation type and represent the transport problem as a tableau and solve it with computer software solves to generate an optional solution. The main objective is to model the product of ABTS transportation as a transportation problem and minimize the cost of transportation of plywood in the ABTS Company. The quantitative method (QM) software will be used to analyze the data.
