Finding a minimum cost point in a transportation network
Report 2004.TL.6917, Transport Engineering and Logistics.
Making the cost of transportation minimum is the desirability of every
manufacturer. This report is about a program designed for this purpose.
There are two main parts in this report:<
Firstly, we will give you a general description about the theory on which
our program is basedùthe Varignon's Frame, and we describe the
Varignon's Frame method with mathmatical language which can be translated
to computer language easily.
The next part is consisted of a series of examples which show reader the
performance of our program. There are some special examples whose result
can be easily got. So reader can verify the googd perforemence of our
program. The last example is more or less a realistic problem we make up
it by assuming that a company wants to distribute its product to almost
every big city in the Netherlands.
