Optimal vehicle locations 

The Dutch police force went through a large restructuring in 2013, resulting in the need to close a significant number of police stations. One of the major effects of closing a police station is a potential increase in average response times for high-priority incidents, since certain locations would lose coverage. The organization needed to better understand the consequences of using different police station locations in order to assess how many emergency vehicles it would need and where they should be placed to best attend to the needs of the community and optimize response time for high-priority incidents. They were able to achieve this with an AIMMS-based emergency vehicle positioning model.
