Abstract : This thesis presents a methodology for finding the routing of paths in a network. The methodology establishes the least construction cost paths and minimum time to travel paths between known points. Since the minimum time to travel network may not be the least construction cost network, Multiple Objective Optimization Theory is used to provide a decision maker with a solution set of networks that have been optimized for their least construction cost and minimum travel time. The methodology may be applied to any class of problems where conflicting objectives exist in determining a network routing. (Author)
