DEFINITION

What is Facility Location Analysis?

Facility location (or location-allocation) analysis determines the optimal locations for a given number of facilities from a set of possible locations based on some criteria while simultaneously assigning the customer demand to the stores or distribution centers. Generally, the goal is either to provide a high level of service, to minimize operating costs, or to maximize profits.
