Models for Facility Location and Capacity Allocation


Phase II
Capacitated Plant location model : Goal is to design on a network design that maximizes profits after taxes

Phase III
Gravity location models: Goal is to identify suitable geographic location with in a region, that minimize the cost of transporting raw materials from suppliers and finished goods to the markets served.

Network Optimization Models


Allocating demand to production facilities Locating facilities and allocating capacity
Key Costs:

Fixed facility cost Transportation cost Production cost Inventory cost Coordination cost
Which plants to establish? How to configure the network?
5-14

Demand Allocation Model


Which market is served by which plant? Which supply sources are used by a plant? Goal is to allocate the demand from different markets to the various plants to minimize the total cost of facilities, transportation and inventory.

The Role of IT in Network Design


IT systems help with network design by:
1. Making the modeling of the network design problems easier 2. Containing high-performance optimization technologies 3. Allowing for what-if scenarios 4. Interfacing with planning and operational software

5-16

Making Network Design Decisions In Practice

Do not underestimate the life span of facilities Do not gloss over the cultural implications Do not ignore quality of life issues Focus on tariffs and tax incentives when locating facilities
