A Multiobjective model for the location of public facilities on an uncongested transportation network is presented. The model combines the Mini-Max and Mini-Sum objectives and considers capacity constraints for the location of the facilities. The problem of locating health care centers in a rural area of Greece is used to display the capabilities of the proposed model.
- Facility Location
- Health Care Center
