  • Feasible solution:when non negative values of xij where i= 1 , 2 , …m and j= 1 , 2 , …n satisfy the constraints of availability or supply and demand or requirement is called the feasible solution of the transportation problem.
  • Basic feasible solution: it is that feasible solution that contains only m + n -1 non-negative distribution.
  • Optimal solution: when the transportation cost is minimum then the feasible solution is said to be the optimal solution.
  • Balanced transportation problem: a transportation problem in which the total supply from all the sources equals the total demand in all the destinations.

Mathematically, i=1 ʃm ai = j=1ʃn bi

  • Unbalanced transportation problem: such problems which are not balanced are called unbalanced.

Mathematically,   i=1ʃm ai ≠ j=1ʃn bi

  • Matrix terminology: transportation problem is also solved by the matrix system. As we all know in matrix the vertical cells are called columns and horizontal cells as rows.
