Multimarket Facility Network Design with Offshoring Applications

Lauren Xiaoyuan Lu, Jan A. Van Mieghem
2009 Manufacturing & Service Operations Management  
The optimal location of commonality crucially depends on the relative magnitude of price and manufacturing cost differentials but also on demand size and uncertainty.  ...  This paper studies a manufacturer's multimarket facility network design problem and investigates the offshoring decision from a network capacity investment perspective.  ...  With demand uncertainty, both strategies may become opti-mal under certain conditions that hinge on the price differential and demand volatility.  ...

Towards 5G: Scenario-based assessment of the future supply and demand for mobile telecommunications infrastructure

Edward Oughton, Zoraida Frias, Tom Russell, Douglas Sicker, David D. Cleevely
2018 Technological forecasting & social change  
Developing and applying an open-source modelling framework, we quantify the uncertainty associated with future demand and supply for a hypothetical MNO, using Britain as a case study example.  ...  To meet this demand, spectrum strategies require the least amount of capital expenditure and can meet baseline growth until approximately 2025, after which new spectrum bands will be required.  ...  Discussion Estimating the future demand for mobile telecommunications infrastructure is a challenging task, as there is a very high degree of uncertainty.  ...
