Overview

From the fast food franchise down the street to a regional landfill a hundred miles away, from a community hospital around the corner to automobile assembly plants across the country, better facility locations can assist individuals and organizations In achieving their goals and realizing their objectives. Facility location models allow analysts and decision makers to explore trade-offs between different objectives, to analyze the impacts of constraints on facility siting decisions, and to consider alternative options. Network and Discrete Location offers a practice-oriented introduction to the art and science of mathematical facility location modeling. By focusing on model development, solution algorithms, and practical applications, the text gives readers an intuitive knowledge of the capabilities and limitations of different modeling techniques. The book features software that solves many of the traditional facility location models using a variety of algorithms, thereby allowing readers to gain hands-on experience in the use of different models and algorithms using realistically sized data sets. End-of-chapter exercises review fundamental concepts and algorithms, enhance model-building skills, and link theory to practice through the use of the software.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A book/disk guide to using and developing facility location models, for students and professionals, with an introduction to model-building methods and solution algorithms using classical location problems and real-life extensions of the basic models. The text outlines methodological tools for solving location models, and concentrates on covering models, center problems, median models, and fixed charge location problems. Appendices offer instructions and tables for using programs on the disk. Includes chapter summaries and exercises. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
