# Robust Emergency System Design using Reengineering Approach

### Marek Kvet, Jaroslav JanÃ¡Äek

#### Abstract

A robust emergency service system is usually designed so that the deployment of given number of service centers minimizes the maximal value of objective functions corresponding with the specified detrimental scenarios. If the problem is solved by any solving technique based on the branch-and-bound method, the min-max link-up constraints cause bad convergence of the associated computational process. Within this paper, we try to overcome the drawback following from the link-up constraints by usage of an iterative process applied to a series of surrogate problems. The surrogate problems represent a simple emergency system reengineering under a given scenario and chosen values of reengineering parameters. The results of the surrogate problems are used for considerable reduction of the initial set of possible service center locations. The robust emergency service system is obtained as the optimal solution of the reduced problem. We provide the reader with a comparison of the original min-max problem solution to the suggested approach.
