A Mathematical Formulation of Urban Zoning Selection Criteria in a Distributed Service Network
Distributed service network is a wide term related to distribution and travelling i.e. distribution of resource among facilities located at various locations and travelling of resource along a distributed network. Policy making problems in distributed service networks can be clearly classified into a number of hierarchical levels. The levels are distinguished by time horizon of the problem, by amount of cost involved in the implementation of a solution and by the political implications of the solution. In the public sector, it includes ambulance, fire, police and other services.
