Multiple Criteria Model for the Location-Allocation Problem

This study presents the application of integer goal programming to the facility location and products allocation problem with multiple, competing objectives. The proposed model describes the situation in which a firm evaluates six potential production plant location sites in four states that would serve four distribution centers. The model considers multiple objectives including several qualitative factors of location analysis and cost-related objectives have been considered in the model. The result of the model indicates that integer goal programming is one of the promising techniques which are applicable to the real-world location/allocation problems.
