Title: Location of Additional Library Facility Case Study: Berekum Municipality
Authors: Teku, Emmanuel
Issue Date: 21-Jun-2013
Abstract: The problem of locating a facility on a network to optimize certain objective criteria has been object in the past few years of growing interest for its relevance in the context of minimizing maximum travel distance between demand nodes. This thesis therefore considers the problem of locating a library facility as a p – centre problem under the condition that there are some existing facilities already located in the Berekum Municipality in the Brong Ahafo Region. Berman and Drezner (2008) method was used on 18 – nodes network which had two existing library facilities at Berekum and Jininjini. An additional library facility using Berman and Drezner (2008) should be located at Akrofro with an objective function value of 8. The objective function value of 8 means that, the minimum distance travelled the farthest library user to the new library facility at Akrofro is 8 kilometres.
