Problem should be of minimum type. we subtract each term from the highest term i. we add 5 dummy columns after first step. 102. Since our problem is of maximum type. 2. Problem should be in form of square matrix. But it has 2 limitations: 1.LIMITATIONS OF HUNGARIAN METHOD The above problem can be solved by Hungarian method. to make it minimum.e. To achieve this. .

5 doesn¶t have any zero we would subtract 9.7.9.3.4.6 respectively from each row and we would get our table as .Solution ‡ Step 1 : There should be a zero in each row and column and if it is not so then we can add it by subtracting smallest element of that row or column from each element ‡ Since in the above problem column 1.

Part E ‡ Brenda wants to retain a few of the people for the supervisor positions which she believes would open up soon. she can move these people into them. How should she identify these two people? . Then when the positions open. She has two vacant clerical positions which she want to offer to the 2 best candidates not selected in five original supervisor positions.

Solution Since these jobs at present do not specify the nature of supervisory work applicants would have to do when the positions open and at present they require to do clerical work. . so she should offer these jobs to the candidates with highest total marks amongst those not selected for any of the supervisory job.

Total score of candidates not selected for any of the job ‡ Roger 379 ‡ Melissa 384 APPOINTMENT ‡ Maureen 442 LETTER ‡ Ellen 433 ‡ David 406 Top two scorers are Maureen and Ellen she should offer them the clerical positions .
