The Facility Location Problem for an Alternative Delivery Service
Vaněk, Petr ; Červinka, Michal (advisor) ; Habibi, Arash (referee)
The main intention of the bachelor thesis is to introduce all necessary theory to under- stand and apply the facility location problem for an alternative delivery service. Solving the facility location problem we are able to find optimal warehouse locations to minimize transportation costs from a firm to customers. Our attention is focused on an alternative delivery service which is slowly becoming to be taken seriously in logistic disciplines be- cause many companies are trying to apply drones or robots for shipping goods. The first part of this thesis deals with an important theoretical background needed to understand the facility location problem. Microeconomic view of the problem is presented, basic knowledge of mathematical programming with algorithms is explained and the facility location problem itself is defined. Moreover, each step of the branch & bound algorithm for the facility location problem is explained on an example from Prague. In the practical part of the thesis, we solve a real problem for the Czech company which would like to im- plement a drone delivery service in Prague. Finally, we discuss future technical progress and its impacts on autonomous delivery service, legislative and privacy problems with a drone delivery system in Prague and other possible usage of autonomous vehicles in...
