A Modified Vogel Approximation Method for Solving Balanced Transportation Problems

thomas adidaumbe ugbe, Stephen Akpan, John Usen, Ofem Ajah


A modified Vogel Approximation Method is proposed and compared with those of the existing methods available for solving balanced transportation problems (in linear programming) for Basic Feasible Solutions (IBFS). The method is shown to be better than existing ones (excluding Vogel Approximation Method) since it does not only considers each unit cost in its solution algorithm, but also minimises total cost  (comparatively) just like Vogel Approximation Method.
