hi!
does anybody knows witch algorithms are behind the new location-allocation tool of the Network Analyst extension?
I've read that the algorithm behind is the  Teitz & Bart algorithm but they refer that they use a metaheuristic algorithm but doesn't explain witch one...
thanks for the help and for access to information about this new function!

best regards,

claudia costa

If you want to discuss this more then e-mail me at jsandhu at esri.com
