Abstract: In this paper, we propose a capacitated p-median problem with concave costs, in which the global cost incurred for each established facility is a concave function of the quantity q delivered by this facility. We use DICOPT to solve this concave model. And then we transform this model into a linear programming problem and solve it using the commercial solver CPLEX. We also use the metaheuristic Variable Neighbourhood Search (VNS) to solve this problem. Computational results show that our linearization method helps to improve the calculations of the concave model. With VNS, we solve large size instances with up to 1500 facilities within a reasonable CPU time.
