Ashish SoniEMBA1st SemesterC-4/EMM/60PRODUCTION AND OPERATIONS MANAGEMENTA Case Study on the Facility Location Problem for a Large-Scale Cosmetics Product Company Abstract Facility location models have been extensively studied and their practical use reported in supply chain related literature. However, few studies exist that relate these models to Disaster Operations Management, where abundant application may be found, for example the possibility of a large scale production that demands immediate action and requires service to a densely populated area. This work takes a facility location model proposed in literature and presents a case study for its application to DuPage County in Illinois. Prospective medical facilities are selected to service the needs of the various communities. Meaningful results are obtained and discussion of future research possibilities. 1. Introduction Large scale emergencies are an issue that all levels of the government are gravely concerned about. Since the 2001 terror attacks in New York City, it has become imperative to pursue research into Disaster Operations Management where facility location planning is crucial for the event of a large scale production. Large scale emergencies come in many forms such as man-made disasters, acts of nature, or even during times of combat. Models that suggest facility location plans in the event of emergencies must consider the facility location objective, facility quantity, and service quality.
