Uncapacitated facility location problem with self-serving demands

  • E Monabbati Ferdowsi University of Mashhad


In classical uncapacitated facility location problems (UFLP) the goal is to satisfy requirements of some demand points by setting up some servers, among potential facility locations, such that the total cost including service costs and fixed costs are minimized. In this paper a generalization of UFLP is considered in which some demand points, called self-serving, could be served exclusively by a new server at that point. Numerical experiments show that near optimal solutions are achieved by the proposed method.
