Multi-purpose optimization for facility localization with stochastic demand by evolutionary algorithm

39 15


In this thesis, We consider facility localization based on constant services and random customer demand.

Three purposes are considered:

1: Minimization of number of customer in a trip

2: Minimization of customers in the status of waiting

3: Maximization of the sum of devices in the unit of time.
