[TITLE] Planning Reliable Service Facilities against the Threat of Disruptions and Congestion in A Continuous Space

[ABSTRACT] Many service systems are composed of interrelated facilities that jointly serve spatially distributed demand. Establishment of such facilities could induce or alter customer traffic that exacerbates congestion in the neighborhood, as customers often choose their own service facility and access path. The situation is further worsened by the risk for the service facilities to be disrupted. This talk presents models for reliable service facility design under traffic equilibrium in a continuous space. We first discuss solution methods for a class of nonlinear partial differential equations (PDE) that describe continuous traffic equilibrium. We show that under certain conditions the PDE can be solved, either exactly or approximately, in closed analytical forms. We then develop several facility location/layout design models that deals with probabilistic disruptions. When closed-form PDE solution is available, the reliable design models reduce to a much simpler nonlinear program.
