Recent Advances and Issues in Facility Location Problems

Abstract : There exist many variants of facility location problems. This chapter discusses some most recent advances and issues in this field including a capacitated plant location problem with multi commodity flow (CPLPMF), a multi-type transshipment point location problem with multi commodity flow (MTTLMF), a large scale new variant of capacitated clustering problem (VCCP), a location problem with selective matching and vehicles assignment (LCSMVA), and competitive. CPLPMF is a combination of capacitated plant location problem (CPLP) and multi commodity min-cost flow (MMCF) problem. MTTLMF is an extension of two-stage capacitated facility location problem (TSCFLP) considering both MMCF and several transshipment point (TP) types for the goal to locate TPs with appropriate types to ship different commodities from plants to customers while minimizing the total cost for opening TPs and shipment. VCCP is a new variant of the capacitated clustering problem, which describes a location-replenishment problem in upstream supply network design. © 2015 The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.
