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,
