Abstract

A The first step to solve a Transportation Problem (TP) is finding an initial basic feasible solution (IBFS). The mostcommonly used methods to find the IBFS are North-West Corner Method (NWCM), Least Cost method (LCM), Vogel’sApproximation Method (VAM). Along with these three popular methods, other methods like Modified VAM, MaximumDifference Method (MDM), Extreme Difference Method (EDM) etc., also exist in literature.This study presents a statistical investigation of the recent solution methods and their efficiency is tested using Analysis ofVariance (ANOVA).
