1. A department head has four subordinates and four tasks have to be performed. The subordinates differ in efficiency and the tasks differ in their intrinsic difficulty. His estimate of the times each man would take to perform each task, is given in the effectiveness matrix below. How should the task be allocated, one to a man, so as to minimize the total man hours? OR Solve the following Assignment problem: Machines A B C D Jobs I 8 13 38 19 II 26 28 19 26 III 17 04 18 24 IV 11 26 15 10
