More and more frequently locational planners are faced with the problem of decision making under the condition of uncertainty. In this paper a methodological framework is presented for solving Location - Allocation problems, through the application of the multinomial logit model to data derived from the modification of the characteristics of a given network. The study differs from earlier work in two aspects: First, a utility junction, as a measure of relative attractiveness, is implemented, in order to assign realization probabilities to each alternative scenario. Second, the decisions are made through the utilization of two system - performance criteria. The expected loss and the minimax loss criterion of the optimal solution of each future scenario generated by the decision maker during the problem - solving procedure of th e approach.
