The economic problem is to distribute the available product to different retail
shops in such a way so that the total transportation cost is minimum. (NWC).
2. Luminous lamps have three factories - F 1, F2, and F3 with production
capacity 30, 50, and 20 units per week respectively. These units are to be
shipped to four warehouses W1, W2, W3, and W4 with requirement of 20, 40, 30,
