A.B. Calvo and D.H. Marks (1973) formulated the problem of locating various types of health facilities, and allocating different types and levels of demand to these facilities, as a zero-one integer programming model. Although the model has been widely referenced in the literature no solution algorithm has been developed to date. It is shown in this work that the model is actually only locally inclusive and that it can be solved as a special case of another general, successively exclusive… CONTINUE READING
