o Prompt: Watch the transportation video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZIyL6pcItY. The video author has a problem to minimize the cost from plants to distribution centers. The constraints are how many products can be produced at each plant. This is a single leg model. If you add the additional leg to customers from the distribution centers and multiple modes of transportation like truck, rail, barge, and ocean liner, you can see the model gets very complicated very quickly. Discuss some areas of your workplace that could use a transportation model. If you do not think a transportation model is appropriate for your workplace, discuss how optimization models can be useful to your workplace.
