Abstract

 

In most cases, facility location decisions are highly expensive to change and managers usually prefer to prevent failures to occur or at least reduce the number of disruptions. A large number of researches are done on reliable facility location models during the last decade. This paper presents a developed model based on a reliable fixed-charge facility location problem, which is closer to real world problems, such as locating emergency systems. The proposed model is a conflicting bi-objective NP-hard problem that minimizes the maximum transportation cost and fixed cost simultaneously. In order to evaluate the verification of the model, a set of computational experiments are performed by LINGO 8.0.
