WEEK 10Iune 6 12 Course outcome in focus 0 Develop solutions for transshipment problems 0 Use technology and information resources to research issues in Management Science Supporting topics 0 The transportation model 0 Computer solution of a transportation problem 0 The transshipment model 0 Computer solution of a transshipment problem 0 The assignment model Weekly Activities Reading 0 Chapter 6 Transportation Transshipment and Assignment Problems Assignments 0 Complete Week 10 Case Assignment Course Lectures 0 Lecturediscussion on transshipment models being an extension of the transportation model where intermediate points known as transshipment points are added between sources and destinations 0 Activity Discussion on transshipment problems 0 Can we apply transshipment models to inventory applications Why or why not a Is the transportation model an example of decision making under certainty or decision making under uncertainty Why 0 Lecturediscussion on assignment problem being a special form of a linear programming model in which all supply and demand values equal one 0 Activity Discussion on transportation problems 0 Explain the assignment model and how it facilitates in solving transportation problems 0 What benefits would be gained from using this model Assignment P Assignment 4 Case Problem Stateline Shipping and Transport Company Read the Stateline Shipping and Transport Company Case Problem on pages 273274 of the text Analyze this case as follows 1 In Excel or other suitable program develop a model for shipping the waste directly from the 6 plants to the 3 waste disposal sites 2 Solve the model you developed in 1 above and clearly describe the results 3 In Excel or other suitable program Develop a transshipment model in which each of the plants and disposal sites can be used as intermediate points Solve the model you developed in 3 above and clearly describe the results 5 Interpret the results and draw conclusions that address the question posed in the case problem What are the limits of the study Write at least one paragraph There are two deliverables for this Case Problem the Excel spreadsheets and an accompanying written descriptionexplanation Please submit both of them electronically via the dropbox The assignment will be graded using the associated rubric Outcome Assessed 0 Develop solutions for transshipment problems 0 Communicate issues in Management Science Grading Rubric for Stateline Shipping amp Transport Case Problem There are 12 points in each of the five criteria for a total of 60 points possible disposal sites Describe and implement the model than 70 accuracy described with 70 79 accuracy and adequately described Criteria 0 1 2 3 Unacceptable Developing Competent Exemplary 0 points 6 points 9 points 12 points 1 Develop a Did not submit or the The objective The objective The objective transportation model objective function function and function and most or function and all for shipping from the 6 andor constraints are constraints are all constraints are constraints are plants directly to the 3 specified with less specified and specified correctly specified correctly in the model and clearly described 2 Solve the model given in 1 and describe the results Did not solve the model or adequately describe the results The model is solved but its validity is questionable or it is The model is solved and the results are mostly valid and The model is solved and the results are valid and correctly trans shipment model in which each of the plants and disposal sites can be used as objective function andor constraints are specified with less than 70 accuracy function and constraints are specified and described with 70 function and most or all constraints are specified correctly and adequately incorrectly described mostly correctly described described 3 Develop a Did not submit or the The objective The objective The objective function and all constraints are specified correctly in the model and clearly intermediate points 79 accuracy described described 4 Solve the model given in 3 and describe the results Did not solve the model or adequately describe the results The model is solved but its validity is questionable or it is The model is solved and the results are mostly valid and The model is solved and the results are valid and correctly incorrectly described mostly correctly described described 5 Interpret the models Did not complete the There are errors in Results are Results are correctly and draw assignment or interpreting the interpreted in a interpreted conclusions interpretation andor results or mostly correct appropriate conclusions drawn are inappropriate manner conclusions conclusions are drawn invalid andor not conclusions are drawn are mostly and communicated intelligibly drawn or this is not appropriate and clearly communicated clearly communicated in a communicated mostly clear manner Discussions 0 There Will be one posting required for each of this week s discussion topics Length grammar and spelling Will be considered in evaluating your submission It will be due by 1159 pm on the Sunday of this week
