Question:-
In a transportation problem North-West corner rule would yield :
Option (A)
An optimum solution
Option (B)
An initial feasible solution
Option(C)
A Vogel’s approximate solution
Option(D)
A minimum cost solution
Correct Option:
(B)
Question Solution:
The solution of a transportation problem can be obtained in two stages namely initial solution and optimum solution. Initial solution can be obtained by using one of the three methods.
(i) North west corner rule
(ii) Least cost method
(iii) Vogel’s approximation method (VAM)
