Location allocation demand weight conflict with candidate weight

Question asked by sb992300 on Aug 16, 2018

I am trying to find an optimal bike station location using location allocation. I have population census by block groups as the demand points. existing bike stations are the competitors in the facilities layer. Also, the candidate locations in the facilities layer are based on a suitability score based on road usage, bus stop proximity based on highest ridership, proximity to attraction and proximity to parks. Once I run the analysis using maximize market share with a 1000 meters cutoff and a linear transformation, the chosen location is based on only maximum population coverage. The suitability score is not even taken into consideration as what is chosen has among the least suitability scores from the potential candidate locations. I have tried a bunch of permutations and combinations but I cannot seem to use the candidate locations based on their suitability scores. What am I doing wrong?
