A Method of Selecting Ports of Entry for a Developing Country.
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CALIF
Pagination or Media Count:
A solution algorithm is presented which solves the problem of selecting ports of entry for the case where the number of ports of entry is constrained to be small relative to the total number of ports. The algorithm initially considers all ports in the system considered as candidates for ports of entry and proceeds by eliminating from further consideration one port at a time until the required number is attained. An attempt is made to remain as close as possible to the unconstrained solution by eliminating at each iteration the port that has the least effect on the objective function value. It is pointed out that the algorithm can yield non-optimal results in some cases but the solution is still better tham most feasible solutions. Author
