LH 1 18-Apr-16 Tec de Monterrey, Campus Santa Fe IN3037 Design and Improvement of Logistics Systems Prof. Dr. Luis E. Herrera HW #05 “Mini-project #2 Single-Vehicle, Multiple-Destination Transportation Routing (Travelling Salesman Problem) Instructions: Collaboration: Yes. This is a team assignment (up to three team members) Due date: Sunday April 24, 2016. By 23h59h. Late submissions carry ZERO credit Submission form: Upload your solution via Blackboard. Submissions to my email will not be graded. Grade: 0-100 points according to accuracy and quality of answers. References: Class notes Business scenario Logistics is important not only for providers of goods, but also for providers of services. Transportation is often the primary concern for companies that provide on-site or in-person services. One such example is a traveling circus like Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey, “ The Greatest Show On Earth ”. The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus “cheats” by actually having two touring circuses, the “red” circus and the “blue” circus, which tour the country simultaneously and thus are able to cover more cities. In this homework, we will be looking at the travels of a fictional circus with just a single touring unit. This Atlanta-based circus plans to visit 35 cities in the United States territory, listed below: After visiting all of the cities, the circus must return to Atlanta. As one might imagine, the travel costs associated with a circus are quite high. Special vehicles, equipment, foods, etc. are needed to transport the tigers, elephants and other circus animals. Other equipment, such as high-wire apparatus and set construction materials, are also expensive to transport. Therefore, the circus would like to minimize its transportation costs during its national tour.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
