Abstract

 

Location selection is an essential decision problem for many industries such as hotel, tourism site, energy, school, warehouse, factory, stores, retails and estate. This paper proposes the Primitive Cognitive Network Process for the location selection problem considering multiple criteria. An illustrated example of hospital site selection demonstrates the usability of the proposed approach.
