Abstract: Transportation problem is considered a vitally important aspect that has been studied in a wide range of operations including research domains. As such, it has been used in simulation of several real life problems. The transportation model is for the optimization of routes, cost and travelling of peoples with the help of public transport buses from the source to the destination by road. The data is collected which includes number of trips per day, cost of trips per trip ,distance between source and destination etc. manually through the questionery interview with the conductors drivers and the regular travelling peoples travelling on that route as well as data collection from PMPML office and calculation for minimizing the transportation cost have been done. The result of the research with proper scheduling, proper routing of buses can save Rs. 48865.875 in a 1 day. The saving of the transportation cost increases the profit of the PMPML. The total saving amount profit percentage is about 18.15% increase from saving transportation cost. The parameters as discussed above are considered and collected manually with the help of survey sheet and transportation model is prepared and after that calculation for minimizing the transportation cost have been done. The methods used for minimization of transportation of cost are Northwest corner method, Least count method etc. The result of the research gives with proper scheduling, routing of buses can save generate so much of revenue with saving of cost.. The amount saved from the transportation cost is utilized for increase the facilities in bus such as A.C, Automatic door system, Air suspension, Good quality of seats etc.
Keywords: Least cost method, Minimum transportation cost, North West corner method, Transportation problem.
Scope of the Article: Transportation Engineering
