Simulated Model for Cost Effective Paddy Product Distribution in Sri Lanka

S Ramanayake, G.T.F. De Silva


A simulation model is presented for cost effective paddy product transportation in Sri Lanka. Paddy production in Sri Lanka is assumed to be sufficient to meet the entire requirement of the country, and distributing among the administrative districts is taken to be proportional to their respective populations. This simulation problem is solved by chance constraint stochastic transportation method. Suppliers and consumers are determined by their production and their population by assuming paddy production to be independent and normally distributed.
