about

Facility location is concerned with the siting of one or more facilities in a way that optimizes certain objectives such as minimizing transportation costs, providing equitable service to customers, or minimizing the time taken to deliver emergency services. This handbook presents a wide-ranging survey of location analysis. Both researchers in the subject and practitioners concerned with the solution of real-world problems will find this an up-to-date and comprehensive volume which addresses all the major methods and applications in the field. Each chapter has been written by an expert on that particular topic, and the editor has taken care to ensure a uniformity of style and notation throughout. The book is organized into four parts: Methodology and analysis of facility location.- Various objectives in facility location.- Competitive facility location.- Routing and location.
