Network Strategies to Service a Set of Locations
Considering a set of locations (nodes) six networks
strategies can be established to service them:
- Minimum construction costs network (A). Network
where all locations are linked through a single route.
- Minimum accessibility network (B). Network where all
locations are linked and have the same accessibility.
- Nodal network (C). One location is better connected
and becomes the most accessible.
- Maximum accessibility network (D). Every
is directly linked to all others, but the construction costs are
high (maximum construction costs network).
- Minimal length network (E) where the summation of the
links are minimal. Depending on the configuration of nodes the
minimal length network could be the same than the minimum
construction costs network.
- Traveling salesperson network (F). It provides minimal
distance for a route between all locations. Also known as the
traveling salesperson network.
