Modified VOGEL Method to Find Initial Basic Feasible Solution (IBFS) Introducing a New Methodology to Find Best IBFS

Muwafaq Mohammed Alkubaisi


This research presents transportation modeling approach to solve transportation problems that flow of items from a certain number of suppliers with various production capacities to a certain points of destination. The aim of the paper is to achieve minimum cost of transportation flow for an initial basic feasible solution (IBFS) which consequently will be closer to the optimal solution of the model. Classical transportation methods for distribution are discussed in details and their IBFS are calculated and compared to the results of newly introduced methodology. The results show that the new method has an advantage over the classical transportation methods through achieving a competitive cost for the IBFS.
