A Comparative Study of Two New Innovative Techniques for Solving the Transportation Problems and its Application in Real Life Engineering

Amir Hussain Idrisi, Akash Agarwal, Nida Nasir, Vikas Dev Singh


 In this paper the two new innovative approaches named NMD Method and ASM Method are used in solving a real life engineering transportation problem and have been compared on the basis of their respective optimality and iterations required. Numerical examples are used for comparison of these methods by comparing the iterations used and optimality of the obtained results.
