Location Allocation and Impedence transformation

Question asked by cclukey on Aug 26, 2014

Hello all,


I'm becoming fairly new to the @location allocation analytical tool and the only criteria I'm still trying to wrap my head around is the @impedence transformation. I understand the concept of the power function and have read several blogs stating the larger the power parameter you choose, the more willing customers will drive to your facility versus a smaller power.


I work in healthcare and from what I've been seeing, the power function is the optimal transformation since patients follow equity of service.


Could someone give a good background of when to use each transformation, and when to change the power parameters (in case I was misinformed above).
