I am not sure how to solve your problem but it sounds similar to Harrah's
entertainment and casino problem. Maybe doing a search on how they applied
business intelligence will help you.

Subject: Optimizing game parlor floor
I am working for a video game parlor, and they wanted to optimize the floor
performance. Here are some other things that I have:
1. There are around 100 locations where machines can be placed
2. Machines (game machines) are of different type - as in action vs.
race vs. strategy, are of different denominations ($1, $2, $5 etc) and are
of different color/theme etc
3. Some machines are located at aisle, some are in middle, some are
around snack bar, while some are located around entrance etc
4. Also, it may not be necessary that all types of games are placed
Given these conditions I wish optimize the overall performance of my floor.
Generally, locations and other things (like snack bar etc) are fixed but we
can change position of machines and denominations to better optimize
I would apprecite if anyone of you can help me solve this problem...
