Location Allocation with Weights and Capacity

Hi everyone,

I have a problem, which is to perform a location allocation activity for facilities, each with a Weight (attractiveness compared to the others) and a maximum Capacity to consider.

The only types of problems that consider weights are those of market share (Maximize and Target).
The capacity is instead respected only in Maximize the coverage capacity.

How to perform an activity that takes into account both constraints?

Thanks in advance,

As you noted, Location-Allocation does not provide a model that takes both capacity and attractiveness into account. Usually attractiveness is in used in retail industry where the retail establishment usually do not have a capacity of customers they want to deal with. Can you describe your use case? How should these two properties impact the location decision?
