Socially Optimal Location of Facilities with Fixed Servers , Stochastic Demand and Congestion

  title={Socially Optimal Location of Facilities with Fixed Servers , Stochastic Demand and Congestion},
  author={Ignacio Castillo and Armann Ingolfsson and Thaddeus Sim},
We present two capacity choice scenarios for the socially optimal location of facilities with fixed servers, stochastic demand and congestion. Walk-in health clinics, motor vehicle inspection stations, automobile emissions testing stations, and internal service systems are motivating examples of such facilities. The choice of locations for such facilities influences not only distances for users traveling to the facilities but also user waiting times at the facilities. In contrast to most… CONTINUE READING
