Abstract

This thesis considers the possibility of partitioning larger problems by clustering the facilities according to the hierarchy of their mutual flows. Two different methods of accomplishing this clustering are developed and evaluated. A model is developed to partition the problem by these methods and to use a branch and bound algorithm at two levels. One level arranges the clusters in an optional manner and the second level arranges the facilities within the clusters.
