The paper should be 5-8 and the power point should be around 12-15 slides and should be from the proposal and the chapters The proposal for the project: The corporate world of manufacturing is often faced with production challenges. One of
the major challenges of production is the transportation of products. In this case, I will use a
random company ABZ Manufacturing Company. It is a company with four outlets, and one pick-
up truck in each outlet. The delivery point is one collection center. To solve the problem of
logistics, there is a need for an approach to use Simplex Algorithms to ensure that all deliveries
are done on time, and no truck is free.
There are around eight variables to be studied in this case study. Because of the
complexity, there is a need to use the Simplex Algorithm to solve the variables. The challenge of
using LPs is the number of variables in the case study. The Big M Method will also be utilized
and provide a graph that shows a solution to the variables, to ensure proper coordination of
company logistics. From the study, I hope to gain more knowledge on linear solutions, and at the
same time solve a real-life problem using Simplex Algorithms.
