Sensitivity of Plant Location Solutions to Changes in Raw Product Supplies

A method is outlined to test the stability of a plant location solution to changes in regional production. Supplies are generated within a probabilistic framework and used as input data for the usual otherwise static model. This approach also yields additional information on the probability of actual plant throughput exceeding designed throughput. Such types of information further assist policy decisions.
