This paper presented how to partition a network in a number of zones. Once a zone has been determined first node to end node, it is time to decide on the location of stationary facilities within the zone. Location decisions belong to the node and it depends on the type of service being offered. In some cases, the imperative concern is to minimize the average distance or the facilities for the population. Approaches to location and models for applying location policy, two major classes of considerations are highly instrumental in selecting an approach to solving; this concern is usually dominant for cases such as locating a post office, a transportation terminal, or an office of a government agency. One class relates to management objectives, the other class is concerned with the nature of the demand for services and nature of the service provided.
