%X Facility location decisions play a prominent role in strategic planning of many firms, companies and governmental organizations. Since in many real-world facility location problems, the data are subject to uncertainty, in this paper, we consider the P-center problem under uncertainty of demands. Using Bertsimas and Sim approach, we develop a robust model of the problem as an integer programming model. Furthermore, we develop a tabu search algorithm for solving the problem. Finally we use design of experiments (DOE) to adjust the parameters of tabu search algorithm. The numerical results of algorithm are presented accordingly.
