VaR-Based Fuzzy Random Facility Location Model with Variable Capacity

  • Shuming Wang
  • Junzo Watada


In this chapter, we revisit the facility location problem. Applying the two-stage fuzzy stochastic programming with VaR (FSP-VaR) discussed in Chap. 6 to the context of facility location selection with variable capacity, we present another two-stage facility location model in the fuzzy random environment which owns a quite different structure from the location model of Chap. 5.
