Key Details

A new multi-product warehouse location model aiming to maximize customer satisfaction is introduced

A mathematical optimization model using binary and continuous variables is formulated

Several families of valid inequalities are proposed to enhance the model formulation

Custom separation algorithms identify promising inequalities at each step

An adaptive heuristic method provides good feasible solutions very quickly

Location decisions for product warehouses to maximize customer satisfaction

This paper studies optimal location decisions for warehouses that store products from manufacturing facilities, with the goal of maximizing overall customer satisfaction based on their product preferences and access. A mathematical model is introduced for deciding warehouse locations, product offerings per warehouse, and customer allocation to products/warehouses. Solution methods involving optimization, heuristics and valid inequalities are developed and tested.
