The Teach Transporation Add-in

The transportation problem is well known in the operations research field. It has many practical applications and there are efficient algorithms specifically designed for this structure.

The articles in this section describe an Excel add-in designed to teach the primal simplex method for the solution of transportation problems.

Follow the links to see how the add-in is used. The contents are organized as steps of the simplex method.

The examples for this section are in the Teach Transportation demo (teachtransdem.xls). To solve or change the model you must have the Teach Network add-in loaded. Use the Relink buttons command to establish links to the worksheet buttons.
