I have a scenario in which I have two service centers (A & B) in an area. The capacity of these service centers are different. Service Center A can serve twice as many as Service Center B.

They both are servicing in the same area. The issue is I want exclusive servicing. Meaning the locations Service Center A services cannot be the same as those Service Center B services. Priority would be distance from centers, however because of capacity restraints I understand Service Center A may have to go to locations technically closer to Service Center B.

Is there a particular type of analysis I should begin to explore?

I feel like K-Means almost took me there, but those results generated my service centers as seeds and my serviceable locations (observations) in terms of proximity only and clustered from there.

  • I'd define n/3 customers closest to fascilty with smaller capcity, where n is total number of customers. The rest of customers will have to use 2nd fascility – FelixIP Jan 17 '16 at 3:59
