A New Chance-Constrained Maximum Capture Location Problem
- 119 Downloads
The paper presents a new model based on the basic Maximum Capture model, MAXCAP. The new Chance-Constrained Maximum Capture model introduces a stochastic threshold constraint, which recognises the fact that a facility can be open only if a minimum level of demand is captured. A metaheuristic based on Max-Min Ant System and Tabu Search procedure is presented to solve the model. This is the first time that the Max-Min Ant system is adapted to solve a location problem. Computational experience and an application to 55-node network are also presented.
