Deficiencies in the formulation of the model for optimal design of the distributed network are pointed out. These concern the existence of communication links and routing variables for updates. Several feasible solutions, with a lower cost than the one given in the above paper for the example discussed, are presented. These establish the inadequacy of the procedure adopted to arrive at the optimal design.
