Finding the location for plans like factories or warehouses
for any organization is an important and strategic decision. Costs of
transportation which are the main part of the price of the goods, is the
function of the location of these projects. to find the optimum location
of these projects, there have been various methods proposed which are
usually defined (not random). In reality and in dealing with real world
conditions, taking into account influential and effective parameters leads
to unexpected results. In this research, while introducing these defined
algorithms, it been tried to random location model based on the existing
models. Regarding this, by studying the models taken in random
location we tried to propose an efficient and effective model. For this
purpose, by using randomized planning and randomized constrained
planning, we turn random model to defined model, which is solvable by
using the last algorithm or standard planning methods.
