The northwest-comer method, as the name implies, begins allocation by starting at the northwest comer of the matrix (Cell S1D1 and assigning as much as possible to each cell in the first (Assign as many units as possible to each cell to meet the requirements of having no more than m +n 1 filled cells, where m = number of rows and n = number of columns. ) The procedure is then repeated for the second row, third row, and so on, until all row and column requirements are met.
