Abstract

The last two chapters dealt with “real estate” problems of service networks, namely, allocation of territorial responsibilities (i.e., zoning), and location of permanent facilities (i.e., stations). This chapter diverts our attention to the “tenants” of those facilities, i.e., personnel and mobile equipment.
