the smallest cost element in the row(column) from the next smallest cost element in the same row(column). Encircle all penalties. 2. Identify the row or column with the largest penalty.

The minimum amount that can be allocated is the smaller of the supply or demand. 4. Adjust the supply and demand to show the allocation made. Eliminate any row (column) that has just been completely satisfied by the allocation just made. i. If the supply is now zero, eliminate the source. ii. If the demand is now zero, eliminate the destination. iii. If both the supply and the demand are zero, eliminate both the sources and destination. 5. Compute the new penalties for each source and destination in the revised transportation tableau formed by step 4.
