A Center of Gravity Analysis is a relatively quick and simple way for network evaluation to be performed. It determines if there is a need for a more rigorous and complete Network Design Study, or if simply the analysis would suffice.
When getting started, first define your goals for the project. Next, gather your pre-existing data. Then, cleanse and validate your data set. Once these things are done in preparation, you can run the model and begin analyzing your results.
