The Vogel Approximation Method is an improved version of the Minimum Cell Cost Method and the Northwest Corner Method that in general produces better initial basic feasible solution, which are understood as basic feasible solutions that report a smaller value in the objective (minimization) function of a balanced Transportation Problem (sum of the supply = […]

## Northwest Corner Method (Transportation Algorithm in Linear Programming)

The Northwest Corner Method (or upper left-hand corner) is a heuristic that is applied to a special type of Linear Programming problem structure called the Transportation Model, which ensures that there is an initial basic feasible solution (non artificial). Other methods for obtaining an initial basic solution are the Minimum Cell Cost Method and the […]
