Solving Fuzzy Transportation Problem Using ASM Method and Zero Suffix Method

Aurora Nur Aini, Ali Shodiqin, Dewi Wulandari


The transportation problem is a special case for linear programming. Sometimes, the amount of demand and supply in transportation problems can change from time to time, and thus it is justified to classify the transportation problem as a fuzzy problem. This article seeks to solve the Fuzzy transportation problem by converting the fuzzy number into crisp number by ranking the fuzzy number. There are many applicable methods to solve linear transportation problems. This article discusses the method to solve transportation problems without requiring an initial feasible solution using the ASM method and the Zero Suffix method. The best solution for Fuzzy transportation problems with triangular sets using the ASM method was IDR 21,356,787.50, while the optimal solution using the Zero Suffix method was IDR 21,501,225.00.
