Repeat Step 3 and 4 till all zeros are either assigned or crossed. If the number of assignments made is equal to number of rows present, then it is the optimal solution otherwise proceed as follows. Step 5: Mark (P) the row which is not assigned. Look for crossed zero in that row. Mark the column containing the crossed zero. Look for assigned zero in that column. Mark the row containing assigned zero. Repeat this process till all makings are over. Step 6: Draw straight line through unmarked rows and marked column. The number of straight line drawn will be equal to number of assignments made. Step 7: Examine the uncovered elements. Select the minimum.
