- Worksheets implementing a Solver solution…for a Transportation problem require cost data,…the number of units available from each source,…and the number of units required at each destination.…In this workbook, those quantities are represented…in the top area of the worksheet.…Once the data is in place, we need to enter sample values…into the changing cells which Solver…will modify to find its solution.…Once we have those values, we can enter our summary formulas…to ensure each destination receives the train cars it needs…and the source yards aren't asked to send more cars…than they have on hand.…
My sample file for this movie…is called Transportation_Formulas…and you can find it in the Chapter 4 folder…of your Exercise Files collection.…So, as I noted, we have our cost data…and requirements in the top section.…Now we can start entering in our decision values…and formulas that we'll use to calculate…our costs and other measures.…First, to enter in the number of cars…that are being sent from each yard,…these four yards here to our five depots along the top,…
