Excerpt from The Retailer Facility Location Problem: January 1985
This paper discusses the problem of location of distribution centers in retailing networks and presents a successful case study for dealing with such a problem. While mathematical programming approaches for facility location problems for manufacturing firms have been extensively used there has been very little treatment for the specific, somewhat simpler case, of locating facilities for a retailer. For a manufacturing firm for example, the problem of locating distribution centers (dc's) is compounded by manufacturing choice. That is, alternative plants can be used to produce different products, or customers can procure different products from different plants. In a retail environment, individual stores will generally have certain fixed requirements from each vendor. Hence, once a specific distribution center is assigned to a given store, all of the inbound (to the D.C., as based on fixed vendor requirements) and outbound (d.c. To stores) transportation and pipeline inventory costs and unit costs can be determined.
