Abstract : This paper deals with the solution of large scale transportation problems by aggregation as a special case of constraint and variable aggregation in linear programming. Using cluster analysis, an appropriate form of aggregation will be used. If the bounds developed at this point are not tight enough, a suitable unaggregation step will be specified. Computational results are presented. (Author)
