How do you do Hungarian algorithm?

The Hungarian algorithm

  1. Step 1: Subtract row minima. For each row, find the lowest element and subtract it from each element in that row.
  2. Step 2: Subtract column minima.
  3. Step 3: Cover all zeros with a minimum number of lines.
  4. Step 4: Create additional zeros.

Can there be multiple optimal solutions to an assignment problem how do you identify such situations?

It means we have the flexibility of assigning different allocations while still maintaining Minimum (Optimal) cost or Maximum (Optimal) profit. We can detect multiple optimal solutions when there are multiple zeroes in any columns or rows in the final (Optimal) table in the Assignment problem.

What is average method in assignment problem?

In this paper, a new method, namely Average Total Opportunity Cost (ATOC) assignment method is proposed to solve the assignment problem followed by a Numerical Example. It minimizes the total cost of certain problems and for few problems it gives a more cost compared to existing Hungarian method.

Why is Hungarian method used?

The Hungarian Algorithm is used to find the minimum cost in assignment problems that involve assigning people to activities. To use this algorithm, we start by organizing our data into a matrix with people as the rows and activities as the columns.

What is impossible assignment?

One of those creative ways of teaching happened when he gave us an impossible assignment. The assignment was to cram the largest date and time, down to the second, into a single 32 bit integer.

How will you solve Maximisation problem using assignment technique?

Maximization case in Assignment Problem There may be situation when the assignment problem calls for maximization of profit. Such problem can be solved by converting the given maximization problem into minimization problem by substracting all the elements of the given matrix from the highest element.
