The North-West Corner Rule is a heuristic method used to initialize and find an initial basic feasible solution for transportation problems within the context of linear programming. Transportation problems involve optimizing the distribution of goods from multiple suppliers to multiple consumers while minimizing transportation costs. The main objective of using the North-West Corner Rule is to provide an initial solution that can serve as a starting point for more refined optimization techniques.
