It is emphasized in the previous section that even finding a feasible solution to the CLSP with a consideration to the setup times is known to be an NP complete problem (Maes et.
This work is an attempt towards solving a multi-item, multi-period CLSP, which considers backorders and setup-times in the formulation; referred to as CLSPBS here.
The standard formulation of the CLSP, which is available in the literature, is extended to include the variables and the situations which we propose to study, to the model.
Lord Irvine said: ``The CLSP is transforming access to legal services and so making its own distinct contribution to combating social exclusion and poverty.
This way, the CLSP can provide a framework for comprehensive local networks of good quality legal and advice centres, supported by co-ordinated funding, and based on the needs of local people.
