A guided reactive GRASP for the capacitated multi-source Weber problem

Luis, Martino and Salhi, Said and Nagy, Gabor (2011) A guided reactive GRASP for the capacitated multi-source Weber problem. Computers and Operations Research, 38 (7). pp. 1014-1024. ISSN 0305-0548

The capacitated multi-source Weber problem entails finding both the locations of capacitated facilities on a plane and their customer allocations. A framework that uses adaptive learning and functional representation to construct the restricted candidate list (RCL) within a greedy randomized adaptive search procedure (GRASP) is put forward. An implementation of restricted regions that forbids new facilities to be located too close to the previously found facilities is also embedded into the search to build up the RCL more efficiently. The performance of this GRASP based approach is tested on three classes of instances with constant and variable capacities. Very competitive results are obtained when compared to the best known results from the literature.
