In previous work, we proposed and studied a new dynamic formulation of the Location-allocation (LA) problem called the Dynamic-Customer Location-allocation (DC-LA) prob­lem. DC-LA is based on the idea of changes in customer distribution over a define... Read More about Racing strategy for the dynamic-customer location-allocation problem..

ANKRAH, R.B. 2019. Generation and optimisation of real-world static and dynamic location-allocation problems with application to the telecommunications industry. Robert Gordon University [online], PhD thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

The location-allocation (LA) problem concerns the location of facilities and the allocation of demand, to minimise or maximise a particular function such as cost, profit or a measure of distance. Many formulations of LA problems have been presented i...

Introducing the dynamic customer location-allocation problem. (2019)
Conference Proceeding
ANKRAH, R., LACROIX, B., MCCALL, J., HARDWICK, A. and CONWAY, A. 2019. Introducing the dynamic customer location-allocation problem. In Proceedings of the 2019 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Congress on evolutionary computation (IEEE CEC 2019), 10-13 June 2019, Wellington, NZ.

In this paper, we introduce a new stochastic Location-Allocation Problem which assumes the movement of customers over time. We call this new problem Dynamic Customer Location-Allocation Problem (DC-LAP). The problem is based on the idea that customer...
