This paper describes the mathematical core of the DOLMEN design methodology, which is based on the idea that performance is the driving factor in component distribution. The mathematical modelling of the optimal component distribution problem in a service network is explored. It is shown that this problem can be reduced to a linear or a combinatorial optimisation problem and some representative examples are given.
