Abstract:

A generalization of the capacitated plant-location problem is formulated and several possible modifications noted. Four solution techniques are briefly discussed exhaustive enumeration, probabilistic search, zero-one mixed integer linear programming, and an iterative procedure. The relative attractiveness of the iterative procedure is illustrated in three examples.
