The paper develops several relationships that can help determine operational characteristics of a mobile service unit. Specifically, it presents a heuristic for the determination of a service area using service level and waiting time criteria and deal's with the decentralization of service units. These relationships may be applied in various contexts: assignment of maintenance crews, dispatching material handling equipment, determining airlines service areas, among others.
