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



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.
