This paper investigates the distribution centre location problem with inaccurate information, and a general model based on a rough feasible region is established. By means of synthesizing the believable degree of the rough feasible region and objective functions, a solution model termed as rough multi-objective synthesis effect (RMOSE) model is developed; this constitutes a series of crisp multi-objective programming models that reflect different decision consciousness for each decision maker. The optimal solutions of the RMOSE model can be obtained by using the genetic algorithm, and it is demonstrated that the solution of the RMOSE model in proper parameters is same as that of existing model with fuzzy model information. So the proposed RMOSE model is actually an extension of a crisp multi-objective programming model. Two cases of experiments for the distribution centre location problems show that the proposed method can be directly applied to real world practices and it is better than existing methods with fuzzy model information.
