comment Optimizing response times of an ambulance corp: short-term versus average
When using real-life data, you need not only the travel times from ambulances to sites, but consider the distribution of calls. For example, an old-folks home might generate two calls per day, whereas Daycare Acres generates one a month. Using this data, you would first determine where the optimal starting stations are in the no-calls situation, and then you can start distributing ambulances based on usage.
