RÉSUMÉ: In the seminar, we introduce the Capacitated Plant Location Problem (CPLP) with Multiple Facilities in the Same Site (CPLPM), a special case of the classical CPLP where severall facilities can be opened in the same site. Applications of the CPLPM arise in a number of context such as the location of polling stations. Although the CPLPM can be modelled and solved as a standard CPLP, this approach usually performs very poorly. In this seminar we describe a novel Lagrangean relaxation and a tailored Lagragean heuristic that overcome the drawbacks of classical procedures.
