Interactive Multidimensional Programming; Models for Locational Decision
The paper is devoted to an extension of traditional location theory in two directions. First, the usual assumption of a single cost function will be abandoned by introducing multiple objectives. This gives rise to a multidimensional programming framework for the traditional location models. The paper provides a solution algorithm for the latter problem. Next, the assumption of a uniform space will be tackled by taking account of discrete candidate-locations. This problem can be solved by means of an adjusted multiciteria analysis. The solution algorithms for both extensions are based on an interactive strategy, so that the decision-maker may identify the most favourable location in a finite number of steps.
