A NEW ALGORITHM USING RANKING FUNCTION TO FIND SOLUTION FOR FUZZY TRANSPORTATION PROBLEM (Published)
In this article a new algorithm is used which depending on proposed ranking function for finding on optimal solution of fully fuzzy transportation problem. In the proposed algorithm, transportation cost, supply and demand are represented by normal or abnormal triangular fuzzy numbers. A numerical example is given to show the efficiency of this algorithm with respect to the Vogel’s algorithm with modified distribution algorithm.
