SIMPLE APPROACH TO LINEAR FACILITY LOCATION

This paper reports on an effective approach to minimize weighted shortest distances from demand points to the facility. The approach generalizes to models with more elaborate cost structures than simple proportionality to distance. The analysis addresses uniqueness issues and characterizes the line with respect to other notions of best linear fits.
