Unformatted text preview: MIDTERM 2 - Linear Programming -Sections 11,13,15 - November 6 (Fall 2002) AutoPower has four final assembly plants for their large diesel motor-generator units in Europe. They are located in Leipzig, Germany (1); Nancy, France (2); Liege, Belgium (3); and Tilburg, the Netherlands (4). As part of AutoPower’s supply chain, the diesel motors used by these parts are produced in the United States, shipped to harbors in Amsterdam (A), Antwerp (B), and Le Havre (C), and are then sent to the assembly plants. The motors available at each harbor, the demand for motors at each assembly plant, and the unit transportation costs between harbors and plants is shown in the follow table. Find the minimum cost solution to this transportation problem using the two phase method described in class. Transcribe the data for the problem on the provided transportation forms, and develop phase I and phase II solutions until optimality conditions are met. Be sure to compute the total transportation costs of your phase I and phase II solutions, and move on to a...
