 Abstract
Generally, the optimal solution of assignment problem has been obtained by Hungarian algorithm with O() time complexity. This paper proposes more simple algorithm with O() time complexity than Hungarian algorithm. The proposed algorithm simply selects minimum cost in each row, and classified into set S, H, and T. Then, the minimum cost is moved from S to T and , . The proposed algorithm can be obtain the same optimal solution as well-known algorithms and improve the optimal solution of partial unbalanced assignment problems.
