The goal of this project is to design and develop a software module to solve a transportation problem, relating to minimizing costs to transport finished goods from multiple origins to multiple destinations. The transportation problem will be modeled as a linear programming model, using AMPL linear programming (LP) software. A graphical user interface (GUI) will be developed to enable the user to enter the data and parameters for the transportation problem. The GUI will be developed using C# programming language within the Microsoft© .NET framework. The GUI will also enable the user to launch the AMPL module to solve the transportation problem to calculate optimum transportation costs. A relational database will be designed and developed to store the parameters and data for the AMPL LP module. Both the AMPL LP model and the GUI will be interfaced with the relational database.
