Transportation and Waiting Line Problems
This lesson is the second in the series on optimisation techniques. This lesson takes off from the simplex methods of the lesson CC/ QM4. The transportation algorithm is a more powerful method to optimise a routing solution. It can easily form the bread and butter of many a Distribution Manager. The author, Dr. A K Rao, a veteran of over 30 years of academics at IIMB and a doyen of consultancy in the Operations Research fi eld makes light of this exacting discipline without sacrifi cing its academic rigour. The second part of this lesson could be the panacea for many bottlenecks in the service industry. The next time there are long queues at reservation counters, there is no need to wonder how to eliminate them.
