An iterative method is proposed for the K facilities location problem. The problem is relaxed using probabilistic assignments, depending on the distances to the facilities. The probabilities, that decompose the problem into K single-facility location problems, are updated at each iteration together with the facility locations. The proposed method is a natural generalization of the Weiszfeld method to several facilities.
