Solve assignment and transportation problem

Hello KNIMERs,

Is it possible to solve assignment and transportation
problem with KNIME/KNIME Optimization extension?

Could I formulate additional limitations beside the limitations of the standard assignment/transportation problem?

For example in case of assignment problem: I have 3 workers (A B C), they have to fulfil 3 different tasks (1 2 3), they can complete the tasks with different cycle time. The objective function is to minimize the total cycle time, what was spent on the tasks.
Additional limitation: Worker B is able to fulfil only task “2”

Thank you in advance!


Hi @rolandnemeth ,
This problem could be solved with the Python or R extension of KNIME. You could try setting up Python or R using the below links.
