Question

Question;The Move-It Company has two plants producing forklift trucks that then are shipped to three distributioncenters. The production costs are the same at the two plants, and the cost of shipping for each truck isshown for each combination of plant and distribution center:A total of 60 forklift trucks are produced and shipped per week. Each plant can produce and ship anyamount up to a maximum of 50 trucks per week, so there is considerable flexibility on how to divide thetotal production between the two plants so as to reduce shipping costs. However, each distribution centermust receive exactly 20 trucks per week.Managements objective is to determine how many forklift trucks should be produced at each plant, andthen what the overall shipping pattern should be to minimize total shipping costa) The mathematical formulation:Please show all work. All the constrains, objective equation, labelsetc more info the better.?b) The optimal solution using Excel.BELOW IS THE ANSWER. BUT ITS NOT SOLVED BY USING SOLVER INEXCEL. IF YOU CAN SOLVE IT IN EXCEL USING SOLVER THAT WOULD BEGREAT, Shouldnt take long since everything is already setup. If not, Mathematicalformulations work is what I am mainly looking for.DistributionCenters (costx 100)1Plant23874DummSupplyy050Ui0APlantBDemandVj6840202020406855000DistributionCenters1PlantAPlantBDemandVj2320DummSupplyyUi30500105012020202020405740DistributionCenters1PlantAPlantBDemandVj232020DummSupplyyUi500302010500202020406840Total Cost (x100)\$340C= 600(20) +700(20) +400(20) +0(10) +0(30) = \$ 34,000_______________________________ Multiple Choice _______________________________1.Consider a minimal spanning tree problem in which pipe must be laid to connect sprinklers on agolf course.
