It shows that generally SBSA did have a very high market share, but as with most organisations that deliver services from fixed points, that market share varied significantly across the region. The areas of low market share clearly provide an immediate snapshot of market potential.

It may of course be possible to look for new quantitative methods to solve these difficult problems. The authors have experienced some success with genetic algorithms. These evolutionary algorithms are particularly suitable for network optimisation problems: for example, how to configure a new network of 50 car dealers or supermarkets in an Eastern European country (such problems are being faced with increasing frequency by growing retail groups in the UK and the USA). A conventional solution to problems of this type is described by Birkin, Clarke and George (1995), and a GA version by Birkin and Culf (2001).
