Determine the optimal location for the industrial facility



  • H. K. Kazem Department of Medical Laboratories Central Technical University, Technical Institute in Balad, Iraq.

In the economies of countries, regardless of their political systems, industry is a major axis in
their economic growth paths. These requirements are closely related to the technical and technical aspect
of the production process, as they are also related to the spatial space in which this industry is held, in
particular the choice of the site for its production activity. As this choice has an impact on the cost of the
product, especially the costs of transferring inputs and outputs of the production process, otherwise, the
improper choice leads to higher unit cost of the product for the consumer and affect the volume of
production and consumption together, and the consequent economic effects with social implications on
Individual and society. In this research, the optimal location of the industrial facility was determined when
we have two sources of raw materials between them and the market and according to the Walter Izerd
hypothesis using the CAD program to represent the graphs necessary to determine the optimal location of
the industrial facility. This topic was addressed to its consequent life because the selection of the appropriate
site for industrial ransom must be appropriate in terms of economic feasibility, as well as these sites must
take into account their side effects on environmental pollution and develop appropriate solutions and how
to get rid of these pollutants Production processes.
