Abstract

This paper presents three new heuristic approaches for the solution of the multisourceWeber

problem in the plane: a constructive heuristic that finds a good starting solution,

a decomposition approach which uses Delaunay triangulation, and a new efficient neighborhood

structure based on the single facility limited distance median problem. A new heuristic

incorporating all these approaches provided high quality solutions in reasonable computing

time. We conclude that these heuristics successfully compete with the metaheuristic based

methods found in the literature improving ten best known solutions. The ideas here may be

extended to a variety of other continuous location as well as data mining problems.
