Multi-Service Capacitated Facility Location Problem in Smart Cities
This paper introduces the Multi Service Modular Capacitated Facility Location Problem, which extends the Multi Service Capacitated Facility Location Problem by allowing for modular capacities. This extension can lead to significant costs benefits, especially in dense areas. Two heuristics are proposed to solve the problem: the Extended Pricing Heuristic (EPH) and the Extended Covering Heuristic (ECH). The ECH gives better results, but its feasilibity is dependent on the choice of the parameters. The EPH does not have this problem and has lower computation times for large instances.
