I am planning to connect houses with Fiber To The Home or FTTH, i was just wondering that location allocation tool in arcgis network analyst may helpful in doing this. So coming straight to requirement:-
1. Demand points are houses say 300 houses
2. Facilities are intersection points (where two or more streets intersects) say 120
Requirement is to find 30 best locations out of 120 to minimize overall cost and total number of demand points per facility should not be more than 10.
Is it possible to do this? How i will combine these two constraints? Which analysis type suites best to this requirement?
Thanks in anticipation.
Since you have 300 demand points and 120 candidate facilities and want to choose 30, each with a capacity of 10, use the Maximize Capacitated Coverage problem type and set the Default capacity to 10 and number of facilities to choose as 30 and solve!
