عنوان مقاله [English]
Facility location problems are among the important operation research and management problems. Locating storehouses, hospitals, rescue-relief stations, military bases,bank branches, etc are some of its famous applications. The aim of solving such problems is to determine the best location for the facilities to ensure their maximum efficiency to provide services for customers. Location problems have recently been studied in the light of inverse approach, various classic algorithms for being introduced for their solution. 1-median problem is one of the most famous functions of target location. However, given that real world parameters are not exact, we decided to investigate fuzzy 1-median inverse problem. Based on alfa-cut concept for fuzzy triangular numbers, first we obtain a fully fuzzy linear programming model which proposes a range for different levels of certainty. Then we propose a solution method based on range account. Thus the solution of 1-median inverse problem with fuzzy parameters corresponds to its classic solution. To help better understand the proposed method, we show a numerical example.
