The location problem of given and indivisible different units
Received 23 April 1970
Abstract. In cases where certain simplifications are allowed, the location optimisation of given and indivisible different economic units may be modelled as a bi-value weighted distribution problem. The paper presents a heuristic algorithm for this network-flow-type problem and also a partial enumeration algorithm for deriving the exact solution. But it is also pointed out that an initial sub-optimal solution can quickly be improved with a derivation on a direct line only, if the exact solution is not absolutely essential. A numerical example is used to illustrate the method of derivation on a direct line starting with an upper bound given by a sub-optimal solution.
