Arithmetic Mean is the most widely used measurement which represents the

entire data. Generally it is temed as an Average to a layman. It is the quantity obtained by

dividing the sum of the values of the items in a variable by their number. It is denoted by a

symbol X. Arithmetic mean by be either:

Ans :-

Ex:-

x = variable,

If the number of items is large and values of variable big in size, a short cut

method of computing x is adopted. This method is based on the following property of the

arithmetic average, The algebric sum of the devations of values of variable from their

mean is always to Zero.

Let us assume the difference figure A as assumed mean. Take deviations of

values of variable from the assumed mean denoted as d. Obtain the sum of these

devations denote as d. Substitute the values of these symbols in the short-cut formula

as under.

X =

A + d

ment to the short cut method. Under this method, the devations are devided by a single

common factor to reduce the figures to the minimum size. It is, in a way, a deliberate error

and it is compensated by multiplying the quotient. The adjusted or reduced value of d in

now termed as d so the formula stands as under.

Weight are numbers or percentages which stand for the relative importance of

items. Such a relative importance may be real or estimated, or actual or approximated.

These weights are assigned to each item under the following circumstance:

(i) When the results of the series are studied comparatively,

(ii) When the computation involves ratios or percentages i.e. Death Rates and Birth Rates.

(iii) When we compute the Index Numbers involving prices of essential commodities

having different importance to each one.

Thus weight of a variate is numerical multiplier assigned to it in order to indicate its

relative importance.

N I L E S H

P A

P A Z A R E

In computing simple arithmetic mean, it is assumed that all the items are of

equal importance. This may not always be the case. When items vary in importance they

must be assigned some weights in proportion to their importance. The value of each item

is then multiplied by its weight. The products are summated and divided by the number of

weights, and not by the number of items. the quotient is the weighted arithmetic mean or

average.

for cumulative frequencies (cf). The median size is first located with reference to the

cumulative frequency (cf) which cover the size first. Then, against that cumulative frequency (cf) , the value will be located as the median value.

Me is the size of

N+1

However, for determining the size of

item, a separate column is to be prepared

equal parts, one condisting of all the values less than it and the other consisting of all the

values more than it. It means, when the values of variable are arranged in an array form (in

an ascending or descending order of their magnitude), the value of middle item of the

array is the median and it is denote as Me.

Ans:- Above series is already exclusive class interval series.

A different procedure is adopted to find out the Median value under continous

series. The class intervals are already in the form of array and the frequencies are recorded against each class interval. For determining the size, we should take N/2th item

and median class is locaed accordingly with reference to the cumulative frequency, which

covers the size first. When the Median class is located, the median value is to be interpolated with the help of the following formula:

Ex (6):- 10 percent of the workers in a firm, employing a total of 1000 workers, earn

between Rs. 5 and 9.99, 30 percent between Rs. 10 and Rs. 14.99, 250 workers between

Rs. 15 and Rs. 19.99 and the rest Rs. 20 and above. What is the median wage?

It is lies in 850 c.f. , and class interval is 62.5 - 95

So, L = 62.5, f = 700, c.f. = 150 and c = 95 - 62.5 = 32.5

Put the values in formulas and find the Median.

Continous Series:- Under the continous series, the modal class is located with the help of

highest frequencies or grouping or inspection (maxium concentration of frequencies).

The same procdure is adopted as it is followed in case discret series. After locating the

modal class, we have to interpolate the value of the mode within the modal class by using

the following formulas:

f1 - f0

f1 - f0

Z = L +

x c or

Z = L+

(f1 - f0) - (f2 - f1)

When the number of items increase, we may convert the data into a descrete

form. Then, the value having the maximum frequency will be treated as the Mode.

Z = Mode,

L = Lower limit of the modal class interval,

It is the value which occurs with the maximum frequency. It is most typical or

common value that receives the highest frequency. The modal class of a frequency distribution is the class with the highest frequency. It is denoted b a symbol Z.

Mode is the value of variable which is repeated the greatest number of times in

the series.

means, the items below the lower quartile and the items above the upper quartile are not

at all included in the computation. Thus we are considering only the middle half portion of

the distribution. The range so obtained is divided by two as we are considering only half of

the data. Thus the Quartil deviation measures the difference between the value of Q1 and

Range:-

Third Quartile (Upper Quartile) Q3 is the value below which there are three fourth of the

items and above which there are one fourth of the items.

The Quartiles are also positional averages like the median. As the median value

divides the entire distribution into two equal parts, the quartiles (Q1 , Q2 and Q3 ) divide the

entire distribution into four equal parts.

Ex (1):- From the following variables find the Mean Deviation and Coefficient of Mean

Deviation from the mean. ====> 10, 18, 3, 9, 6, 4

Ans: Arrange the data in an ascending order to have the short cut method applicable.

Mean Devaiation is the average difference among the items in a series from the

mean itself or median or mode of that series. It is concerned with the extent to which the

values are despersed about the mean or the median or the mode. It is found by the

averaging all the deviations from the central tendency. These deviations are taken into

computations with regard to negative sign (i.e. all the deviations assumed as possitive).

In aggregating the devations, the algebraic negative signs are not taken into

account. It means all the devations are treated as positive ignoring the negative sign.

Mean deviation or average deviation is denoted symbolically by the Greak small

alphabet (delta)

mean. This deliberate error is compensated by multiplying the entire formula by the same

factor. The formula works as under.

Short Cut Method:Sometimes the mean will be a fractional figure. Then we should take the deviations from the assumed mean and the direct method formula will be having some adjustment.. As the deviations are not taken from the actual mean we get the d as some value

A: Individual Observations:

Ex (1):- From the following variables find the Standard Deviation and Coefficient of

variation(c.v.)

====> 43, 48, 60, 30, 58, 23

Ans: Arrange the data in an ascending order

Standard Deviation is the root of the sum of the squares of the deviations devided

by their number. it is also called Mean Error Deviation, Mean Square Deviation or Root

Mean Square Deviation. It is a second moment of a dispersion. Since the sum of the

square of the deviation from the mean is minimum, the deviations are taken only from

mean (but not from median or mode).

Standard Deviation is the root-mean-square average of all the deviations from

the mean and it is denoted by (sigma).

Ex (11):- A study of large number of workers revealed an average pulse rate of 81 beats er

minute and standard deviation 12.2 beats. Measurement of heights gave averages 66.9

inches and standard deviation 2.7 inches. Are the industrial workers more variable in

respect of pulse rate?

Karl Person has stated a formula for relative measure of skewness. That is why, the

formula is known as Karl Persons Coefficient of Skewness. It is based on the difference between the Mean and Mode of the distribution which is divided by the standard

When the X and Y of the variables are fractional figures, the computation

will be a tedious job. Under such circumstances, we can take the deviations from the

assumed means for the two variables (the next nearest whole number to the

actual mean preferably). Then we have the Short cut formula as under.

Reason for taking the factor 0.6745 is that in a normal distribution 50% of the observation lie in the range 0.6745 where is the mean and is the standard deviation.

These above formula are quite conveniently applied, if the X and Y of the variables are

integer or whole numbers.

population. It is not possible to consider the entire population (census method) in statistical analysis and arrive true or actual results. So there lies error in the sampling result as

compared to the actual result obtained in the census method.

Probable Error is a measure (a single fractional figure) which when added to and

substracted from , gives us the two limits, within these two limits, it is probable that all

the results or answers (coefficient of correlation) of the sample pairs, selected from the

same population, will fail. Thus the probable error is a statistical measure which provied

for two limits within which all the answers, obtained from different sample pairs of the

population, will fail.

It is based on the standard errors multiplied by the probable factor. It is obtained by the

formula:

The formula is based on arithmetic mean and standard deviation and it is most

widely used. The formula indicates whether the correlation is positive or negative. The

answer lies between +1 and -1 (Perfect Positive and Negative correlation respectively).

Zero represents the absence of correlation.

Karl Pearsons coefficient of correlation is also known as the Product Moment

Coeficient. It is denoted by r which is the symbol of the degree of correlation between

the two variables. Coefficient of Correlation is the numberical measure of the amount

of correlation existing between the two variables X and Y, the subject and the relative

respectively. The variable which is used as the standard is called the subect, and the

variable which is compared with the subject is called the relative. The Coefficient is

calculated by dividing the product of all the deviations of each pair of observations from

their respective means by the product of the standard deviations of the two variables

multiplied by the number of items.

Rank

The formula is based on the ranks of the variables according to their sizes.

Following are the circumstances when the Rank Correlation coefficient is used.

(i) In a beauty contest, cooking contest, flower show contest and interview involving selections, we can use the rank correlation coefficient.

(ii) If the data are irregular or extreme items are erratic or inaccurate, we can use the rank

correlation coefficient.

Under this method of rank correlation coefficient, the individual items of variables

(x and y) are arranged in order of their ranks. We can apply this method only to individual

observations, but not to frequency distributions. In the process of ranking, the original

vaues are not taken into account, but only the ranks are assigned on the basis of original

values. The Ranks Correlation Coefficient is denoted symbolically rs.

Correlation Measure (Karl Pearsons Coefficient of Correlation):

(Basic Equation)

(Secondary Eq.)

X=a+bY

x = na + b y

xy = a y + b y2

= byx * bxy

The product of the both regression coefficient and root of it the resultant will always be

Correlation. The value of byx and bxy individually both cannot be more than 1. If one is

more than 1, the other must be less than 1. Both the regression coefficients will have the

same algebric signs. Either both of them would be positive or both of them would be

negative. It is not possible that one has a positive sign and the other is a negative sign.

The reason is that the standard deviations are always positive. Only the Coefficient of

Correlation can be either positive or negative.

P A Z A R E

Sometimes we find the means are in fractions. This makes the deviations and their

squares are also in fractions. To avoid the tedious calculations, we can have the assumed

means in round figures. Then, to find regression coefficients we can use the following

procedure.

byx =

ndxdy - ( dx )( dy )

bxy =

ndxdy - ( dx )( dy )

With the help of regression coefficient, to find the Coefficient of Correlation as under:

(i) x on y .............. x = a + by

(i) y on x .............. y = a + bx

Regression means returning or stepping back to the average value. With the

help of values of one variable (indepedent) we can establish most likely values of other

variable (dependent). On the basis of two available correlated variables, we can forecast

the future data or events or values.

In statistics, the term Regression means simply the Average Relationship.

We can predict or estimate the values of dependent variable from the given related values

of independent variable with the help of a Regression Technique. The Measure of Regression studes the nature of correlationship to estimate the most probable values. Its establishes a functional relationship between the Independent and Dependent variables.

1) Simple Semi-Average Method:- Divide the series into two equal halves (parts). If the

items are odd in number, the middle item is left out and kept isolated. If the items are even,

we well have two equal parts with no middle item. For example

The Total of the values in each part is devided by the total number of the items of that

part. This gives us the mean value for each part. Each average is then cenred in the period

of time from which we have to plot the two points on the graph i.e. Two Average Values

are plotted. Then both these two points are joined by a straight line which gives the

simple semi-average trend.

points on a graph sheet. Observe the up and down movements of the points. Smooth out

the irregulatrties by drawing a freehand curve or line through the scatter points. The curve

so drawn would give a general notion of the direction of the change. Such a freehand

smoothed curve eliminaes the short time swings and shows the long perod general

tendency of the changes in the datat. To overcome these limitations, we can use the Semi

ma be pulling together the rend in different directions. The problem is solved by statisticians by decomposing the time series to understand the historical past and to give insight

in to the future. There are four methods commonly used in measuring the Trend Value.

a) Graphic (Freehand Curve Fitting) Method.

b) Method of Semi-Average.

c) Method of Moving Averages and

d) Least - Squares Method.

2) Annual Increament Semi-Average Method:- Under this method, the data are divided

into the two equal halves. For each half, a simple srithmetic mean is obtained i.e. x1 and x2

The difference between the two means is divided by the number of items in each part

(i.e. items in one section). This ives us the Annual Increament.

Under this method, the trend values can be obtained by employing arithmetic means

of the series except at the two ends of the series. We can have the moving averges for 3,

4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 years depending upoin the size of the items. The procedure of veraging the

3 itmes or 4 items or different items simplifies the analysis and removes variations in the

values for a period concerned. The moving averages may form a straight line trend or a

curve. The process of averaging works as under.

We should decide first the period of the moving average. If it is 3 years or months or

weeks or days, the problem of centering the averages will not arise at all. But if we take 6

years or months or weeks or days, the averages are placed first in between th two middle

items and the arithmetic mean will be applied to center the items.

In the time series, the variable x can be measured from any point of origin period as

first year or starting point. It is always better to select the point of origin in the middle of the

x series (i.e. x = 0). this brings balance between the negative and positive values. The

period indicating the higher values can be reduced to the minimum sysmbolically as

under.

P A

The sum of deviations of the Y (actual values) from the Yc (cmputed values) is equal

to zero.

the least squares method of finding the trend line. It satisfies the following two conditions.

N I L E S H

y

n

y = Sum of y values

x = Sum of x values

n = Number of Observation

x2 = Sum of the squares of x

xy = Sum of the products of x and y.

x = Independent variable

y = Dependent variable on x

a = The y intercept or catch constant

b = Indicate slope & signifies the

changes in x constant

Y on X ---------Y = a + bX

To obtain the values of a and b constants, we have the following two secondary

equations.

y = na + b x

xy = a x + b x2

A linear trend values are obtained by the y on x equation which form a series in

arithmetic progression, the constant difference being the value of b representing the

slope. Following are the notations.

This is the most accurate method of finding the trend values with the help of a mathematical technique, which gives us a straight line trend. A line of the Best Fit can be

obtained by the regression equation Y and X. It is a line from which the actual values

deviated on either sides. The sum of the deviations taken from the arithmetic mean will be

zero. Consequently, the sum of squares of devitations will be leas, as compared to the

other alternatives. That is why this method is called the Method of Least Squares.

(a) There should be an objective which should be clearly identifiable and measurable in

quantitative terms. It could be, for example, maximisation of sales, of profit, minimisation

of cost, and so on.

(b) The acitivites to be included should be distinctly identifiable and measureable in

quantitative terms, for instance, the products encluded in a production planning problem.

(c) The resources of the system, which are to be allocated for the attainment of the goal,

should also be identifiable and measureable quantitatively. They must be in limited supply. The technique would involve allocation of these resources in a manner that would

made off the returns on the investment of the resources for the attainment of the objective.

(d) The relationships representing the objective as also the resource limitation considerations, represented by the objective function and the constraint equations or inequalities, respectively, must be linear in nature.

(e) There should be a series of feasible alternative courses of action availbale to the

decision maker which are determined by the resource constraints.

The linear programming method is a technique for choosing the best alternative from

a set of feasible alternationves, in situations in which the objective function as wll as the

contraints can be expressed as linear mathematical functions. In order to apply linear

Since, Z is higesht at point Q, the optimal solution is to produce 18 units of product A and

8 units of product B every week, to get the profit of Rs. 1000. No other product mix under the

given condition could yield more profit than this.

Thus, maximum profit of Rs.1000 can be achieved when x1 = 18 and x2 = 8 at point Q.

From the graph, the line that would yield the maximum profit that passes through the Point

Q. This point give the maximum contribution and thus represents the optimal solution i.e.

18 units of Product A and 8 units of product B. This production of 18 units of A and 8 units

of B will consume

2 x 18 + 3 x 8 = 36 + 24 = 60 kg of raw material and

4 x 18 + 3 x 8 = 72 + 24 = 96 labour hours.

Hence, both the resources shall be fully utilised by this production plan.

In our example, the feasible region is given by the polygon OPQR, so we shall obtain the

ordinates of each of these points (giving the values x1 and x2 ) and caluculate the objective

function value by subsituting them into the objective function. The values of x1 and x2 at

each point can be ready directly from the graph. Also, in respect of those points which lie

on the intersection of tow lines, we can get the values by solving simultaneously the

equation representing those lines.

Some Special Cases:In each of the two examples discussed so far, we have obtained a unique optimal

soution. We now consider three types of linear programming problems which do not have

unique optimal solutions. These are problems having multiple optimal solutions, having

no feasible solution, and having unbounded solutions.

1. Multiple Optimal Solutions: As stated above, in each of the three examples that we

have considered, we have observed that the optimal solution is given by an extreme point

of the feasible region and the solution is unique. The uniquesness implies that no other

solution to the given problem shall yield the same value of the objective function as given

by that solution. It is, of course, possible that in a given problem there may be more than

one optimal solution. Each of the multiple optima would naturally yield the same objective

funciton value.

The solution (if it exists) to a linear programming problem shall always be unique if

the slope of the objective function (represented by the iso-profit lines) is different from the

R

50

Joining the two points (0,96) & (240,0) , we get the striaght line corresponding to the above

equation. The area beyond this line represents the feasible area in respect of theis contraint

any point on the straight line or in the region above this line would satisfy the contraint.

Similarly, the second contraint can be depicated by plotting the straight line corresponding

to the equation 80x1 + 50x2 =7200. The points falling on this line and in the area beyond it

indicate the feasible values of x1 & x2 in respect of this contraint.

Since both the requirements are to be met, the feasible region in respect of the problem is

as represented by the shaded area. The feasible region here represents a convex set.

The region is unbounded on the upper side because one of the restrications in the

problem places an upper limit on the value of either of the decision variables. Obviously, if

such limits are placed, the feasible region would be a bounded one.

Since, the total cost is minimum at point P, the optimal solution to the problem is to buy 144

bags of mixture of B only and none of mixture of A. This would entail a total cost of Rs 3456

Thus, miximum cost of Rs.3456 can be achieved when x1 = 0 and x2 = 144 at point P.

2. Infeasibilty: It has already been stated that a solution is called feasible if it satisfies all

the constraints and the non-negativity conditions. Sometimes it is possible that the constraints may be inconsistent so that there is no feasible solution to the problem. Such a

situtaion is called infeasibility.

In the graphic approach to the solution to an LPP, the infeaisbility is evident if its

feasible region is empty so that there is no feasible region in which all the constraints may

be satisfied simultanieously.

In this example, the constraint to which the objective function was paralle, was the one

which formed a side of the boundary of the space of the feasible region. As mentioned in

condition (a), if such a constraint (to which the objective function is parallel) does not form

an edge or boundary of the feasible region, then multiple solutions would not exist. An

optimal solution that is unique and there are no multiple solutions, but in this problem,

there are two optima, which are multiple solutions, So it is called as Multiple Optima

We observe that iso-profit lines are parallel to the equation for third constraint 3x1 + 6x2 =

900. As we move the iso-profit line farther from the origin, it coincides with the portion BC

of the constraint line that forms the boundary of the feasible region. It implies that there are

an infiinite number of optimal solutions represented by all points lying on the line segment

BC, including the extreme points represented by B(50,125) and C(100,100). Since the

extreme points are also included in the solutions, we may disregard all other solutions

and consider only these, to establish that the solution to a linear programming problem

shall always lie at an extreme point of the feasible region.

The extreme points of the feasible region are given and evaluated here.

slope of the constraints. In case the objective function has slope which is same as that of

a constraint, then multiple optimal solutions might exist. There are two conditions that

should be satisfied in order that multipleoptimal solutions exist.

(a) The objective function should be parallel to a constraint that forms an edge or boundary on the feasible region and

(b) The constraint should form a boundary on the feasible region in the direction of

optimal movement of the objective functions. In other words, the constraint must be a

binding constraint.

From the graph, we find the points of B i.e. ( 2.33, 2.57 ), which are not bounded to the

feasible region. Clearly, here the objective function is not bound over the feasible region

and we can move the iso-profit line upward witout any limit. The problem has, therefor,

unbounded solution.

For a minimisation LPP, unboundedness occurs when htere are points in the feasible region with arbitrarily small values. To conclude, a maximisation LPP is unbounded

if, moving parallel to the original iso-profit line in the direction of increasing Z, we never

entirely leave the feasible region and, on the other hand, a minimisation problem is

unbounded if we never leave the feasible region while moving in the direction of decreasing Z.

3. Unboundedness: For a maximisation type of linear programming problem unboundedness occurs when there is no constraint on the solution so that one or more of the

decision variables can be increased indefinitely without violating any of the restrications

(constraints). Thus, an unbouned LPP occurs if it is possible to find points in the feasible

region with arbitrarily large Z-values (may be profit or revenue). this sugests that practically

if we find the solution to be unbounded of a profit-maximising linear programming problem, it may be concluded that the problem has not been correctly formulated.

It is represented graphically in above figure. The feasible region corresponding to the first

two constrants is bound by the convex set OABC, while the feasible region in respect of the

third constraint is also shown shaded separately. We can easily observe that there is no

common point in the areas shaded.

Therefore, all the constraints cannot be satisfied and as such, there is no feasible solution to the given problem.

Ex (4):- A retired person wants to invest upto an amount of Rs 30,000 in fixed income

securities. His broker recommends investing in two bonds: Bond A yielding 7% and Bond

B yielding 10%. After some condideration, he decides to invest at most Rs 12,000 in Bond

B and at least Rs 6,000 in Bond A. He also wants the amount invested in Bond A to be at

least equal to the amount invested in Bond B. What should the broker recommend if the

investor wants to maximise his return on investment? Solve graphically.

Ex (6):- Let us assume that you have inherited Rs 100000 from your father-in-law that can

be invested in a combination of only two stock protfolios, with the maximum investment

allowed in either portfolio set at Rs 75000. The first portfolio has an average return of 10%,

whereas the second has 20 & In terms of risk factors associated with these portfolios, the

first has a risk rating of 4 (on a scale from 0 to 10), and the second has 9. since you want

to maximise your return, you will not accept an average rate of return below 12% or a risk

factor above 6. Hence, you then face the important question. How much should you invest

in each portfolio? Formulate has this as a linear programming problem and solve it by

graphic method.

Ex (7) :- A local travel agent is planning a charter trip to a major sea prot. The eight day and

seven night package includes the fare for rount trip, surface trasportation, board and

lodging and seleced tour options. The charter trip is restricted to 200 persons and past

experienc indicates that there will not be any problem for getting 200 clients. the problem

for the travel agent is to determine the number of Deluxe, Standard and Economy tour

packages to offer for this charter. These three plans differ according to seating and service

for the flight, quality of accommodations, meal plans and tour options. The following table

summarises the estimated prices for the tree packages and the corresponding expenses

for the travel agent. The travel agent has hired an aircraft for the flat fee of Rs. 200000 for

the entire tips. In planning the trip, the following considerations must be taken into account

i) At least 10% of the packages must be of the Deluxe type.

ii) At least 35% but not more than 70% must be of the Standard type.

iii) At least 30% must be of the Economy type.

iv) The miximum number of Deluxe packages available in any aircraft is restricted to 60

v) The hotel desires that at least 120 of the tourists should be on the Deluxe and the

Standard packages taken together.

i.e. demand value or supply value. And from observation, it found that the demand

value is small, so put the demand value in AP cell and substract the demand

value from demand & supply cell.

i.e., after substracting the value of demand & supply, we get

Obtaining the initial Feasible Solution: The first step in using the transportation method is

to obtain a feasible solution, namely, the one that satisfies the rim requirements (i.e. the

requirments of demand and supply). The initial feasible solution can be obtained by

several methods. The commonly used are the Nort-West Corner (NWC) Rule, Least Cost

Method (LCM) and the Vogels Appoximation Method (VAM).

algorithm, it does not require any artificial variables to introduce for obtaining an initial

solution to the problem.

Broadly, the transportation method involves the following three steps:

(1) Obtaining an initial solution, that is to say making an initial assignment in such a way

that a basic fesible solution is obtained.

(2) Ascertaining whether it is optimal or not, by determining opportunity costs associated

with the empty cells. If the solution is optimal then exit, and if it is not optimal, proceed

to step (3)

(3) Revise the solution unitl an optimal solution is reached.

Step 1:- From above table, first find the least value from whole table and assign that least

value from demand & supply value and above table the cell S2D1 value is least

value i.e. 4. Now allocate the lower value from supply & demand i.e. 150 in S2D1

cell Now the column is satisfied by this allocation, the row total revised.

i.e. substracting the lower value from supply & demand, we get

Step 6:- Start the north west corner and above table, CS cell, Find out which value is small

i.e. demand value or supply value. And from observation, it found that the supply

& demand value are both small, so put the value in CS cell and substract the

value from demand & supply cell.

i.e., after substracting the value of demand & supply, we get

Leas Cost Method (LCM) :As the name suggests, this method entails making allocation at each step by selecting from the routes (that is, combinations of soures and destinations) available, the one

with the minimum cost. To begin, we choose the cell which has the minimum cost,

consider the supply available at the source (ai) and the demand at the destination (b j)

corresponding to that, and allocate the lower of the two (ai or bj) to the cell. After this, we

delete the row or column (or both if ai = bj ) whichever is satisfied by this allocation. If the

row is deleted, then the column value (bj) is revised by subtracting the quantity assigned.

Similarly, if the column is deleted, then the row total is revised. After this, we consider the

routes remaining and again choose the one with the least cost, make assignment and

adjust the row/column total. We continue in this manner until all the units are assigned.

It may be mentioned that at any stage, if there is a tie in the minimum cost, so that two

or more routes have the same least cost of shipping, then, conceptually, either of them

may be selected. However, a better initial solution is obtained if the route chosen is the

one where larges quantity can be assigned. Thus, if there are three cells for which the

(least) cost value is equal, then consider all of these one by one and determine the

quantity (by reference to the demand and supply quantities given) which can be despatched, and choose the cell with the largest quantity. If there is still a tie, then either of

them may be selected.

Step 4:- Start the north west corner and above table, BR cell, Find out which value is small

i.e. demand value or supply value. And from observation, it found that the demand

value is small, so put the demand value in BR cell and substract the demand

value from demand & supply cell.

i.e., after substracting the value of demand & supply, we get

demand = 180 - 180 = 0 & supply = 300 - 180 = 120.

Repeat the same step till the Demand & Supply value become zero ( 0 ).

Vogels Approximation Method (VAM) :The Vogels Approximation Method, commonly known as VAM, is another cost-based

method used for obtaining initial solution to a transportation problem. Actually, it user cost

differentials rather than absolute costs, to select the appropriate cell to make allocations.

First, consider every row of the cost matrix individually and find the difference between

two least cost cells in it. Then, repeat the exercise for every column. Consider all cost

difference and identify the row or column with the largest value. Now, focus on the cell with

the smallest cost in the row or column so chosen and make allocation in that. The number

of units allocated would be lower of the corresponding supply and demand values. In

case of a tie in the larges cost difference, although either of them may be chosen, it is

preferable to choosen the cost difference corresponding to which the larges number of

units may be assigned or corresponding to which the cell chosen has minmum cost. To

illustrate, suppose the larges cost difference is found to be tied for a row and a column. In

applying the first of the rules, determine the quantity (condidering the available supply and

demand) which can be assigned in each case and select the one where larger quantity

can be assigned. In the other case, unit cost values of the two least cost cells, in the row

and column and choose the one which has a lower value.

Delete the row or column which has been satisfied by the allocation and adjust the

quantity of demand/supply. Recalculate the cost difference for the reduced matrix and

proceed in the same manner as discussed above para. Continue with the process until

all units have been assigned.

In above table, the requirment total is 145 and Capacity total is 105. So table is not

balanced. Thats why in Dummy Row taken in table with the difference value of

Capacity & Requirment i.e. 145 - 105 = 40. So 40 value taken in Dummy row

Ans:Note:- In above exmple the Demand total is 320 and Capacity total is 280. So table is not

balanced. Thats why in Dummy Row taken in table with the difference value of

Capacity & Demand i.e. 330 - 280 = 50. So 50 value taken in Dummy row.

Now the table are as follows, after taking the Dummy.

Note:- When the NWC method use to solve the above table, then first find which value is

small from Capacity & Demand. Then start north west corner of that row or column. In

above table Capacity value is small i.e. 90 then start to solve the problem from AJ cell

turn, is a special type of linear programming problem. Accordingly, an assignment problem can be formulated as a linear programming problem and solved using a modified

simplex method or otherwise. It may noted that its formulation requires that the decision

variables take only one of the two vales 1or 0 accordingly as an assignment is made or not

If ther is no row or column with only a single Zero element left, then select a row/

column arbitrarily and choose one of the jobs (or persons) and make the assign-ment. Now cross the remaining zeros in the column and row in respet of which the

assignment is made.

Repeat steps ( a ) through ( c ) until all assignment are made.

Determine the total cost with reference to the original cost table.

Ans:- Step 1 : Row minimization - The minimum value of each row is subtracted from all

elements in the row. It is shown in following table.

Step 3 : Draw the minimum number of horizontal and vertical lines (not the diagonal

ones) that are required to cover all the Zero elements. If the number of lines drawn is

equal to n (the number of rows/columns) the solution is optimal, and proceed to steps 6.

If the number of lines drawn in smaller than n, go to step 4.

Tip:- 1) First find the single Zero from row, if Zero find in row then cut the column

2) Then find the single Zero from column, if Zero find in column then cut the row

This step repeat till there are Zero not left in given table and optimal solution is satisfied.

In above example table, optimal solution is not satisfied, then Use ABC Analysis.

76

Step 6 : Given the optimal solution, make the job assignment as indicated by the Zero

elements. This is done as follows:

a) Locate a row which contains only one Zero element. Assign the job corresponding

to this element to its corresponding person. Cross out the zeros, if any, in the col-umn corresponding to the element, which is indicative of the fact that the particular

job and person are no more available.

b) Repeat ( a ) for each of such rows which contain only one zero. Similarly, perform

the same operation in respect of each column containing only one Zero element,

crossing out the zero(s), if any, in the row in which the element lies.

C

Step 4 : Select the smallest uncovered (by the lines) cost element. Subtract this element

from all uncovered elements including itself and add this element to each value located at

the intersection of any two lines. The cost elements through which only one line passes

remain unaltered.

Step 2 : Column minimization - The minimum value of each column is subtracted from all

elements in the column. It is shown in following table.

P A

Step 2 : In the reduced cost table obtained, consider each column and locate the smallest element in it. Subtract the smallest value from every other entry in the column. As a

consequence of this action, there would be at least one zero in each of the row and

columns of the second reduced cost table.

Step 1: Locate the smallest cost element in each row of the cost table. Now subtract this

smallest element from each element in that row. As a result, there shall be at least one

zero in each row of this new table, called the Reduced Cost Table.

It may observed that none of the three working methods discussed earlieer to solve

an assigment is efficient. A method, designed specially to handle the assignment problems in an efficient way called the Hungarian Assignment Method, is available, which is

based on the concepts of opportunity cost. For a typical balanced assignment problem

involving a certain number of person and an equal number of jobs, and with an objective

function of the minimisation type, the method is applied as listed in the following steps:

Assignment are mad in the following order. Rows 1, 3, and 4 contain only one zero each.

So assign 1-B, 3-C and 4-A. Since worker 1 has been assigned job B, we cross the zero

in the second column of the second row. After making these assignment only worker 2 and

job D are left for assignment. The final pattern of assignments is 1-B, 2-D, 3-C and 4-A,

involving a total time of 40 + 55 + 48 + 41 = 184 minutes.

Note:- This step 4 means ABC Analysis & Job Assignment is same for all problems for

assigning and after ABC classified & ABC Treament, to draw the reduced cost table.

Here, Key element is 4, after ABC Treatment, the following table appears

Ex (1):- A company plans to assign 5 salesman to 5 districts in which it operates. Estimates of sales revenue in thousands of rupees for each salesman in differents districts

are given in the following table. In your opinion. What should be the placement of the

salesmen if the objective is to maximise the expected sales revenue?

Ans:-

79

3) Add key element to all C

ABC Treatment :-

ABC Classified

C-Double Crossed

In some situations, the assignment problem may call for maximisation of profit,

revenue, etc. as the objective. For dealing with a maximisation problem, we first change

it into an equivalent minimisation problem. This is achieved by subtracting each of the

elements of the given pay-off matrix from a constant (value) K. Thus, we may simply put a

negative sign before each of the pay-off values (which is equivalent to subtracting each

value from zero). Usually, the largest of all values in the given marix is located and then

each one of the values is subtract from it (the larges value is taken so as to avoid the

apperarance of negative signs). Then the problem is solved the same way as a

minimisation problem is.

Key element = minimum key of all A

Maximisation Case

( Zmin = 66 )

The total cost associated with the optimal Person-job assignment is 66 in the aggregate.

This step repeat till there are Zero not left in given table and optimal solution is satisfied.

Tip:- 1) First find the single Zero from row, if Zero find in row then cut the column

2) Then find the single Zero from column, if Zero find in column then cut the row

In above example table, optimal solution is not satisfied, then Use ABC Analysis.

After ABC Analysis, The optimal assignments can be made as the least number of lines

covering all zeros.

Step 5 :

There are more than one optimal assignments possible in this case because of the

existence of multiple Zeros in different rows and columns. The assignments possible

are:

S1 D 2 , S2 D 1 , S3 D 5 , S4 D 3 , S5 D 4

= 46 + 48 + 45 + 49 + 43 = 231 or

S1 D 2 , S2 D 5 , S3 D 1 , S4 D 3 , S5 D 4

= 46 + 44 + 49 + 49 + 43 = 231 or

S1 D 2 , S2 D 5 , S3 D 1 , S4 D 4 , S5 D 3

= 46 + 44 + 49 + 44 + 48 = 231 or

S1 D 2 , S2 D 1 , S3 D 5 , S4 D 4 , S5 D 3

= 46 + 48 + 45 + 44 + 48 = 231

Each of these assignment patterns would lead to an expected aggregated sales equal to

231 thousand rupees.

with a view to locate one of their zonal officers. There are five main rooms in tis to be

assigned to five mangers. Each room has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Some have windows, some are closer to the swashrooms or to the canteen or secretarial pool. The rooms are of all different sizes and shapes. Each of the five managers

Ans:- An 8 hour working day, with a 30-minutes lunch time allowed, implies that new

working time available per day is 7 hours 30 minutes, that is 450 minutes.

Total working hours =

8 hrs = 8 x 60 = 480 mint.

Actual working time = 450 mint.

The number of units of deifferent products which cold be produced by the four operators

can be calculated by dividing 450 by the given processing times.

Ans:- Using the given inform, we first obtain the cost matrix, when different jobs are

performed by different typists. The elements of the matrix are obtained as follows. To

illustrate, if typist A is given job P, he would require 199/12 = 16.58 hours and, hence, be

paid for 17 hours @ Rs. 5 per hour. This results in a cost of Rs. 85 for this combination.

To begin with, we first assume that all the crew is based at New Delhi. Using this

assumption, we can obtain the layover times of various combinations of flights. To illustrate, the flight 101 which starts from New Delhi at 5 A.M. reaches Mumbai at 7 A.M. If it is to

return as 201, the scheduled time for which is 7 A.M., then it can do so only after 24 hours

since a minimum layove time of 5 hours is required. Similarly, layover times for other flight

combinations can be obtained as shown in the table.

In this case, after covering zeros there are 2 Rows lefts i.e. C & E, so assume alternate

and cross the Zero for satisfied the optimal solution.

The minimum number of lines to cover all zeros equals 5, which matches with the order

of the matrix. Accordingly, assignments have been made as described below:

To continue, we can obtain the optimal pairing of flights so as to minimise the total laover

time, using the Hungarian Assignment Method.

Step 1 : Row minimization - The minimum value of each row is subtracted from all

elements in the row. It is shown in following table.

Now, since the crew can be based at either of the stations, minimum layover times can be

obtained for different flight combinations y selecting the corresponding by selecting the

corresponding lower value out of the above two tables. for instance, in combining flight

101, we select 20, which is lower of the two values 24 and 20 ( see the both tables), like

that select the lower limits for other flights also. The values are shown in following table:

Step 3 :

Step 2 : Column minimization - The minimum value of each column is subtracted from all

elements in the column. In all the column has present the Zero, so table same as above.

With a zero in each column as well, there is no neeed to perform the ABC treatment or

column reductions. Further, the number of lines covring all zeros is equal to the order of

the given matrix, we can obtain the optimal assignment as shown in the table:
