A plant has four operations to be assigned to four machines. The time (minutes) required by each worker to produce a product on each machine is shown in the following table:

Machine(min.)

Operator A B C D

1 10 12 9 11
2 5 10 7 8
3 12 14 13 11
4 8 15 11 9

Determine the optimal assignment and compute total minimum time.
