Location-allocation analysis with facility capacity constraints

Hi,

I am looking to optimally locate numerous new facilities to accommodate a rise in demand. The demand points are census unit centroids and i am looking to maximize coverage with a fixed level of new facilities. I was wondering if there is a way to designate a maximum level of capacity that candidate facilities can service so that when a maximum capacity is reached (i.e. servicing 100 households) the extra demand points are allocated to another facility?

Thanks,
Jacob
