Location-Allocation -Target Market Share - facility and demand weighting

Question asked by pweir on May 2, 2018

Hi Guys

 

Just trying to understand Loc-Alloc in latest arcgis Pro with the esri training Tutorial  (finding-the-optimal-location-of-facilities-using-arcgis-pro).

 

In using the hospital exercise, I am trying to adjust the results in "Target Market Share" using the "Attractiveness" Weighting scores in the facilities.

That is: adjust weighting to allocate demand to biggest/attractive facilities (within reason)

 

The results don't look like "attractiveness weight" (1-5 ranking for 22 records) have much impact...after many trials

 

Just wondering if there is some description or formula for the facility-weighting vs. demand-weighting and distance settings?

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Regards
