Join Curt Frye for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding data to the worksheet, part of Solving Optimization and Scheduling Problems in Excel.
Once a worksheets framework is in place…we can add the data that Solver will use…in it's calulations.…There are three types of information we need…The cost of moving a train car from…a supply yard to a depot,…The number of cars available in each…of our four yards that supply the cars,…and the number of cars required by each of the five depots.…My sample file is the Transportation_Data Excel workbook…that you can find in the chapter four folder…of your exercise files collection.…
I have an outline, and what I want to do…in the top section here is enter in the costs…that are associated with moving a car…between a yard, and a depot.…I'll click in cell C5 and start typing.…In cell C5 I'll enter the value .6…I have formatted the cell so it displays…two digits to the right of the decimal point.…Then in D5 I'll type .56, tab,…then next .22, and tab.…
.4 tab, and .51 and tab again.…Now, in cell H5 I'll type in the capacity…of the Minneapolis yard,…and that is 12,000, and enter.…Okay, everything looks good.…Now we can do the same thing for…
