A Mathematical Model in Reduction of Cost on Transportation of Sugarcane and the Loss Due To the Accident in Transportation


P. Saravanamoorthi and V. Navaneethakumar

Sugarcane is a main economic crop to the farmers. The farmers, the people and the factories depend on this crop. Farmers who are cultivating the sugarcane have to send to their product to the nearest factories. Some vehicles are utilized for transporting the sugarcane to the factory. The vehicles are lorries, bullock carts or tractors. If the cost of transportation of sugarcane, sent to the factory is minimum, then the total processing cost will also be minimized. In this paper, the idea of minimum transportation cost is discussed using Linear Programming Problems and the mode of transportation between the field and the factory. The possibility of loss due to accident is also discussed in order to get ready for the sudden loss of the product.
