OFSTF Method- An Optimal Solution for Transportation Problem


In this paper a different approach OFSTF (Origin, First, Second, Third, and Fourth quadrants) Method is applied for finding a feasible solution for transportation problems directly. The proposed method is a unique, it gives always feasible (may be optimal for some extant) solution without disturbance of degeneracy condition. This method takes least iterations to reach optimality. A numerical example is solved to check the validity of the proposed method and degeneracy problem is also discussed.
