Lagrangean heuristics for location problems, European Journal of Operational Research, vol.65, 1993, pp383-399.

In this paper we present a framework for developing lagrangean heuristics (heuristics based upon lagrangean relaxation and subgradient optimisation) with respect to location problems. Computational results are given for four different location problems: p-median, uncapacitated warehouse location, capacitated warehouse location and capacitated warehouse location with single source constraints. These results indicate that the framework presented in this paper is robust, i.e. it gives good quality solutions for each of these different location problems.
