Finding a Minimal Transport Cost for a Transport Problem
AbstractThis paper is about finding a solution to a transport problem, using visual programming applications, with one of the specialty software – Visual Basic. Among company’s spendings there are product transport spendings suported by economic agent in his way from each producers to beneficiaries. We presented the transport problem under the form of a table which contains entry data: producers (ex. Bucuresti, Ploiesti, Arad, Pitesti), beneficiaries (ex. Metro, Kaufland, Carrefour, Sellgros) and transport costs from each producers to beneficiaries. We used the minimum cost line method and north-west corner method as economic mathematic methods for determining a minimal transport cost.
