Abstract

This research is being submitted to show the use of non-linear goal programming to determine the demand and resource leveling of the Portland Fire & Rescue Bureau. The objective of resource leveling is to determine the strategic placement of fire bureau resources throughout the city. This objective is met through the use a linear regression analysis and the development of a non-linear goal programming model. The results of this research show how the use of a non-linear goal program is effective at determining the optimal demand to resources level as a function of the fire management area size.
