A Location Problem for Emergency Healthcare Facilities



A location problem for emergency healthcare facilites
Bayındır, Zeynep Pelin; İyigün, Cem (null; 2017-09-08)
In this study, we consider the problem of locating emergency healthcare facilities in urban areas. Upon emergency occurrence, patients are directed to any one of the emergency centers with a likelihood that depends on the travel time. Moreover, the survival, that represents the severity of the consequences of the emergency situation, is also probabilistic and is a function of the travel time. A mathematical model is constructed under the objective of maximizing expected number of survivors while determining...
A location-routing problem for the municipal solid waste management system
Ayanoğlu, Cemal Can; Meral, Fatma Sedef; Department of Industrial Engineering (2007)
This study deals with a municipal solid waste management system in which the strategic and tactical decisions are addressed simultaneously. In the system, the number and locations of the transfer facilities which serve to the particular solid waste pick-up points and the landfill are determined. Additionally, routing plans are constructed for the vehicles which collect the solid waste from the pick-up points by regarding the load capacity of the vehicles and shift time restrictions. We formulate this revers...
A location-routing problem in glass recycling
Rahim, Fatih; Şerbetcioğlu, Ayşe Canan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2014-12-01)
In this study, a location-routing problem encountered in glass recycling is addressed. We formulate a combined maximal covering location problem in the presence of partial coverage and selective traveling salesman problem to determine the location of bottle banks and the route of a collecting vehicle that will daily visit a number of customers and the bottle banks. We propose a nested heuristic procedure to solve the problem. The outer loop of the heuristic is based on variable neighborhood search while the...
A location and routing-with-profit problem in glass recycling
Polat, Esra; Sepil, Canan; Department of Industrial Engineering (2008)
In this study, our aim is to determine the locations of bottle banks used in collecting recycled glass. The collection of recycled glass is done by a fleet of vehicles that visit some predetermined collection points, like restaurants and hospitals. The location of bottle banks depends on the closeness of the banks to the population zones where the recycled class is generated, and to the closeness of the banks to the predetermined collection points. A mathematical model, which combines the maximal covering p...
