They are typically used to model problems involving the transport of items between locations, using a network of routes with limited capacity. 1.1 Introduction to Network Flow Problems [1] There are numerous problems that can be viewed as a network of vertices and edges, with a capacity associated with each edge over which commodities flow. >> endobj When the balancing rate function is constant, the proposed algorithm requires O(mT(n,m» time, where T(n,m) is the time for the maximum flow computation for a network with n vertices and m arcs. /Matrix [1.00000000 0.00000000 0.00000000 1.00000000 0.00000000 0.00000000] The q 596 0 0 180 0 0 cm /Im0 Do Q endstream << /S /GoTo /D (Outline0.1) >> /Filter /FlateDecode /UseTextOutlines false What are the decisions to be made? /BitsPerComponent 8 edges which have a flow equal to their maximum capacity. >> For this problem, we need Excel to find the flow on each arc. /Type /XObject A three-level location-inventory problem with correlated demand. x���P(�� �� << /S /GoTo /D (Outline0.2.3.11) >> x���P(�� �� ���� Adobe d� �� � �� �T ��� endobj Given these conditions, the decision maker wants to determine the maximum flow that can be obtained through the system.
